About The Bird
About the Title
A thrasher is a type of bird related to the mockingbird. It is described as “a large, skulking bird of thickets and hedgerows; one of the largest song repertoires of any North American bird; raucous call; boldly patterned, conspicuous when singing on its territory, but hardly discernable during the rest of year.
Someone asked us once, “Are you trying to be funny?” Boy, that hurts. But the answer is an unequivocal maybe. Actually, no. But perhaps yes. Educational, interesting, informative, intriguing, voluptuous, insightful, scintillating . . . yeah, all that stuff. Accurate, authoritative . . . sometimes. If you are offended by anything you read here, write us at once and please copy Harry Reid and Newt Gingrich for effect. Really, sometimes when we are off our meds, there may be a lot of inaccuracies, lies and deceit in this stuff. But on your lucky day – like the day someone actually won money playing Keno – we might just surprise you and hit the nail on the head and the ball out of the park and the nose on the donkey and a bunch of other metaphors about intellectualism and perspicacity. Don’t make important life or financial decisions or use big words like "perspicacity" within two hours of reading anything here and do not operate heavy machinery or play Angry Birds . . . anytime.
