Working Title: AllBirdsAreChickens: From YKTTW
: I gotta disagree about the "mostly unremarkable" limpkin. First there's the awesomeness of having evolved a right-curving beak that's perfectly adapted for pulling apple snails (virtually the only thing they eat) out of their right-spiraling shells. Then they also have a delightfully goofy deliberate walk, as if they were auditioning for the Ministry of Silly Walks. Hence the name. Once you've seen one walking along the water, lifting its feet way up and wobbling it's butt as it walks, it's hard to forget.
