"Have you by any chance got our quagga leg?" [Dec. 31st, 2014|04:48 pm]

Which London museum has a three-legged quagga?

"It took a very long time for the museum to realise what a treasure it had; there are many oddities in a collection which only three years ago discovered it had half a dodo in a drawer, filed as a crocodile."

This, it seems, was an understandable mistake: crocodiles and birds do have common characteristics. That's all right, then.

Happy New Year!

Wouldn't half a dodo just be a do? :o)
