I had a huge post planned about just how rich I've just now become, BUT I just had to post these pictures of a Skeksis invasion of Playford Lake. Of course we don't call them Skeksis here on Earth; we instead refer to them as Ibis.
As we all know the 42 books of ancient wisdom (hey, where do you think Douglas Adams got his research from? ME!) written by Thoth were the precursors to the books I'll be writing in a thousand years... But, more importantly, Ibis is the modern translation of Thoth (okay, I just made that last part up).
There ya go; 3000 years of history is one short paragraph.
Before I post the Ibis pics, I have to ask you a question. I do know the answer so don't think you're smarter than me, hmmph.
What is the name of these birds, what did they used to be called, when was the name changed, and why was the name changed?
Well, alright, I'm sorry. That was 4 questions. But I'm sure that some biologist up in Squarebanks will be equal to the task. BTW, no biologisteses from Alaska are allowed to use google or wikipedia. The rest of you can, no worries.
Oh, and feel free to add a caption to any of the photos in the comments, no worries!
And if anyone wants a fullsize wallpaper (optimised for your screen size) of any of these, just drop me a line, no worries.
Heeeeeeerrrrreeeeee we go! (We'll start with the crappy ones first)
Yeah, I can't think of much else to say either. Except, of course, BLOODY GREAT PICTURES DAVE!!!!!!
