Fowl Play: For the Birds: Pt. 2

4. The bird with the coolest name for the “Metallica” font: Archaeopteryx

“Without its feathers, Archaeopteryx looks much like a small coelurosaur such as a dromaeosaurid or troodontid.” Yup. More of that here and interesting info on bird/dinosaur history here.

5. The bird with the coolest name for any font: The Blue-footed Booby

Everything you wanted to know about boobies but were afraid to ask.

6. The coolest bird in Wonderland: The Dodo

“This question the Dodo could not answer without a great deal of thought, and it sat for a long time with one finger pressed upon its forehead (the position in which you usually see Shakespeare, in the pictures of him), while the rest waited in silence. At last the Dodo said, `EVERYBODY has won, and all must have prizes.'”

My monkey mind prodded by psychic emissions in the form of the Dodo.
