The Canberra Times took a few hits about their King Parrot caption on page 1 of Saturday's edition.
Here's what I fired at them:
The king parrot - a reasonably common Canberra species - appears to have undergone astonishing metamorphosis during the past couple of centuries. Judging from the photo of a painting by First Fleet artist George Raper (CT, November 5, p.1), the bird once bore a striking resemblance to a species of red-tailed black-cockatoo.
I'm excited! Is this an example of intelligent design at work, or merely an unintelligent caption?
