    Just give me the money, NTMTOM. [Pause] How much for the gun?

  4. What kind of boids are these guys?

  5. Ahhhh, They make the shape of a heart, what a lovely “ménage à trois”.

  6. kibblenibble says:

    I confess I just looked up “pawnbroker’s symbol” to find out what NOMTOM was talking about. I learn so many random things here at CO.

    Beautiful french.

  8. Disapproving buurrrdies, disapprove! That’s one surly threesome.

  9. canadianmary says:

    Gorgeous little faces; they have EYEBROWS!
    (swoon over the baby fuzz on their little chests too)
    Please don’t pawn them (cannot think of one “pun/pawn)” to write…
    sweeties…

  10. They are SO PRETTY! Come on Boid Expertz what are they?

  11. They’re hawks! I mean, hocks?
    Sorry.
    I tried to find out – no luck so far.

  12. I’m no bird expert but, based on the shape of their tails, they look like they might be juvenile New Zealand Fantails…

    Take the gun, leave the cannoli. ;-)

  14. birdcage says:

    April for the win!!!!! Bebeh fantails from down undah!!!!!!!

  15. w00t! :-D

  16. MudBug says:

    What leave a perfectly good canoli ????

  17. warrior rabbit says:

    They all look kinda frowny. Like they’ve been taking notes from bunnies.

  18. bob drummond says:

    These three remind of a singing trio from the 1960’s but I’m not too sureof which one.

  19. bob drummond says:

    You’re right! You take the gun and I’ll grab the cannoli!

  20. kodalai says:

    So did I. Even the color is right!

  21. The line is actually, “Leave the gun, take the cannoli.” Makes more sense that way, too. :P

  22. OMG that’s exactly like the Pixar short film “For the Birds”. Google the video and watch it!

  23. Martha in Washington says:

    I think the one in the middle is being squished just a little too much. His eyes are bugging out! :)

  24. Yep, you got it, totally NZ fantails. Had a chance to see them live not long ago. Adorable little birds, and very inquisitive – they’ll fly up to you, and wait for you to shake a bush so that small insects will take off from the leaves for the birdies to catch.

  25. victoreia says:

    Pawnbrokers have a symbol?

    Learn somethin’ new every day!

  26. victoreia says:

    Heh. I was just thinking they look a bit disapproving….

  27. snorglepup says:

    They gots little birdie eyebrows!

  28. marian the librarian says:

    love the trading places rollover … looking good, NTMTOM …. Feeling good, Louis!

  29. Alice Shortcake says:

    Yes, they have three brass balls.

    I shall forbear from further comment.

  30. Down-under birds are amazing, maybe just because I’m not from there. I love birds, and was most fascinated (and envious) to see the very different bird life down there. Amazing to me to wake up and see things like galahs, corellas and rosellas. And to hear kookaburras (incredibly LOUD). And bell miners, which go “BING! BING! BING!” and could conceivably drive you insane. 8O

  31. The Kingston Trio? The Supremes? :mrgreen:

  32. They were also incorporated into the family crest of the Medici (Renaissance bankers and eventually the ruling family of Florence). You see them (the “palle”) all over Florence, and the war cry or rallying cry was “Palle! Palle!” or “Balls! Balls!” Make of that what you will.

  33. Lerrinus says:

    *happy sigh* so pretty! I see two parents keeping their baby warm, aw! :-)

  34. I get to see them fairly often as I live in New Zealand — they are just gorgeous!

  35. Fird Birfle says:

    who wants ta MAKE SENSE, Th?????

  36. Fird Birfle says:

    *snerk* “could CONCEIVABLY….”

    Nice qualifying terms there, Th. :)

  37. Fird Birfle says:

    *giggle*

  38. Fird Birfle says:

    Also: “Twerp Bros” = HA HA HA

    I’d bet that Click et Clack would love this one.

  39. Fird Birfle says:
  40. Oh, the fluffulence!!

  41. bob drummond says:

    I think it might be the Supremes, judging by the faces , the chiffon
    gowns and the fact that the one in the mlddle looks like Diana
    Ross!
