    so…. why?

  • Because they got caught and stuffed for museum exhibits!

    “There’s not many of these left, so we better grab these ones before they disappear forever…”

    Tourist logic.

    dumb as do-dos.

    I love this picture because that dodo looks so unimpressed with life. I think that if this dodo were alive today it and Grumpy Cat would be friends (if Grumpy Cat didn’t try to eat the dodo first). :D

    Ever read Howard Waldrop’s “The Ugly Chickens.” It’s about a man who discovers that there may be some few dodos left, in rural Mississippi. And it is deeply, though sadly, funny, and one of the best works ever about human nature and extinctions.

  • Sounds vaguely familiar. I may have read it as a teen.

    Because it was delicious…
