All this discussion re "Jizz" is nowhere near as complex as people are
making out. The term was coined by US servicemen during WW2 and was derived
from the following:  General impression ,shape and size. (GISS)- Which has
been corrupted in speech and spelling to "JIZZ". It was used to train
service personnel in rapid identification of aircraft. It seems appropriate
to use it on birds as they have been flying past our eyes much longer than
the man-made beasties.
