Birds of Weatherfield

First I must preface this with a confession that I partake in one of those wonderfully British pastimes, birdwatching. The birds with feathers, not the ones down at the pub of course.

Today while was glancing through one of my guide books I saw that the latin name for the Bohemian Waxwing is 'Bombycilla Garrulus' which seems to have a strange parallel to our dear fish fryer friend Cilla.

She thinks she is the bomb, and she is indeed garrulous. Get it?

It seemed funny to me. Really.

I know, Papa Smurf the bird nerd.

Excellent observation, oh Bird Nerd. And the Latin translation of "cilla" is "tail" ... as in "piece of tail."
