The silliness continues.

In todays Column 8 (Sydney Morning Herald)

Neville Mills, of the Gold Coast, offers this marvellous signage for use at the kookaburra enclosure at the Greenville Zoo in South Carolina: "The kookaburra is ideal to mate with other species. Kookaburras should first be mated with homing pigeons. The offspring are then introduced to woodpeckers. The resulting birds, homing kookapeckers, are not only very attractive and able to find their way home, but on arrival knock on the door."
