Baffled by the Weird Name?
Bruce and his wife took the kids down to Florida for vacation. Each morning they would have breakfast out on the deck and every bird within a five mile radius would join them. Of particular interest to their three year old son was a White Ibis.

His son referred to it as the big-nose-bird. Bruce explained to him that it was in fact an Ibis, but he insisted that it was the big-nose-bird. This reinforced for Bruce, two important points:

A few common words can convey more meaning than one technically correct word.

You can't win an argument with a three year old. ;-)
