STEALING A JOKE FROM A ROOMMATE BECAUSE THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW:

SO ONE OF THE FIRST SCIENTIFIC NAMES MOST U.S. BIRD PEOPLE LEARN IS THE SCIENTIFIC NAME FOR THE AMERICAN ROBIN BECAUSE IT’S FUNNY AS FUCK

TURDUS MIGRATORIUS

IN THE GENUS TURDUS

IN THE ORDER TURDIDAE

T U R D.

I DON’T CARE IF YOU’RE A RESPONSIBLE ADULT WE’RE ALL STILL THIRD GRADERS AT HEART AND THIS SHIT (PUN ACTUALLY NOT INTENDED) IS FUNNY

AND ONE OF MY ROOMMATES IS FROM THE UK WHERE THEY HAVE ACTUAL ROBINS, NOT THIS NEW WORLD THRUSH STUFF. (SEE, AMERICAN ROBINS AREN’T ACTUALLY ROBINS AT ALL OR EVEN THAT CLOSELY RELATED, THEY’RE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT BIRDS. TAXONOMY IS WEIRD.)

HE IS UPSET THAT WE DO NOT HAVE ACTUAL ROBINS HERE AND SO HE CALLS THE AMERICAN ROBIN

THE RED-BREASTED SHIT THRUSH

AND SO SHOULD EVERYONE ELSE

THIS IS A POST.
