RUDE BIRD NAMES
People are often hindering my progress and saying “Zeb, your father was a pre-eminent publisher of bird books, did he do one about rude birds? You know, Shags and stuff?”
Well really! I mean? It is true that he published an awful lot of books about birds, my favourite is Woodpeckers of the World, which is enormous. However, being as I am an obliging sort of fellow, I looked into the matter and discovered that there are indeed quite a few birds who’s names could be misconstrued as rude, if you have that sort of mind (it goes without saying that I don’t). There are not enough, sadly, to make up a whole book, but as it so happens, there are the perfect amount to fit on a limited edition print! As of course this is a worldwide blog, read by people from all over the world from the USA to America, some of the rudeness may not be rude in your language. To avoid confusion I have left out the ones which I know aren’t rude outside Britain and Scotland, such as the Wanker Bird. If still there are innuendoes that you are not familiar with then please contact me directly through the contact section and I will explain as delicately as I can.
This is a very beautiful print, which from a distance doesn’t look rude at all, apart from the fact that at the top it says The Rudest Birds of the World in quite big letters. So anyway it is ideal for people who like birds and also people who like rude things (shame on you).
