Jon was no help-- he liked the puns and wittiest ones, but this was a NAME I needed, something that I could say without slurring or spitting.
So I took it to the Pelicans at Lake Balboa. Mouse over and then click to find the winner. (sound on)
The great entries, don't think I missed any:
My Little Pony
Remember Mr. Peabody?(Mr. Peabody)
Back Door Man
Little Chick Pea
Mac, short 4 macaroon
Iggy (short for Igloo)
Squabiscuit (a long shot becomes a pigeon)
Coconut Creme Baby
E. B. White
Alfred North Whitehead
Dough Dough Bird
Clydesdayle (Clyde for short)
Sweet P. (P. for Pigeon)
Bibendum (the official name of the Michelin Man)
Splenda (or Splendove)'cause he's a substitute.
scratch 'n' sniff
Why James Brown? Aside from the fact I cracked up right away, we have a tradition in the aviary of totally inappropriate names. (and now the squab has a theme song!) Like the rooster's name is Elle, and the all black chicken is named Star. There used to be a chicken named Axie. Jon's favorite was Mod Squab, but that is hard for me to say,as I see that b flipping back and forth into a d. Same with Squabble, I mean I'd go back and forth rhyming with scrabble or sounding like squab. And then I start to feel like Donald Duck.
I loved these entries. Noel Coward the squab, how funny! Squabiscuit! Actually I'm cracking up all over again looking through this list. Thanks, all. And Marilyn, send me your address so I can mail the grand prize. (funonmars(at)earthlink.net)
