Turkey Buzzards?

You ain't talking turkey buzzard nohow!

Turkey Buzzards, Turkey Buzzards

Turkey buzzards are very fine creatures.
They can speak well some English, too.
Here's one of their special features:
"Ralph's hurling a wretched eschew!"

This might make you cough out a carpet.
This might make you wax a whole floor.
But this bird makes a wonderful bar pet
and brings in the patrons galore.

I used to lie on the ground at the farm and play dead to see if the turkey buzzards would circle down low for a closer look.

At the hagweon where I work, one of the textbooks we created has a chapter on "Animal Defenses," and one of the creatures described is a bird called a fulmar, which vomits a nasty, blinding goo at attackers. Lovely.

I saw a bird in Barcelona
that vomited nastiness on ya'
its puke made you puke
for 'twas Nature's rebuke
—its goo reeked of Great-aunt Ramona
