* Fletcher is occupying his time with one in an episode of ''Series/{{Porridge}}'', and isn't doing particularly well. When Godber starts giving unwelcome hints, solving the clue for a bird with four letters starting with "R" and ending with "K" as "rook", Fletcher goes on the defensive and suggests it could be "rilk" instead. He then proceeds to invent details about the habits of his fictional bird:
-->'''Fletcher:''' A "rilk" is a migratory bird from the [[GlobalIgnorance North Baltic shores of Finland]]. Its main distinguishing feature is that it flies backwards to keep the [[LastSecondWordSwap sh- the snow]] out of its eyes.
