The Curate Bird

by bryanthomas

"Mum, have you heard of a curate bird?" said Simon. "I don't think so. It's certainly not native to this country. It sounds exotic, possibly from the Southern Hemisphere?" said Simon's mother.

"I want to write about it for my natural history project. I've looked on the Internet and I can't find anything, not a single photograph or video clip - nothing at all."

"Are you spelling its name correctly?" "Duh! I'm not five, Mum." "Then it doesn't exist."

"Of course it exists." "Why are you so sure?"

"Because only a curate bird could lay a curate's egg." "Simon! You birdbrain!"

@bernardtwindwil Sounds good to me, although on a simpler level it's about Simon thinking that a curate's egg is actually a bird's egg, silly boy. :o)

I think you just struck home on 75% of the net. As everything is curated. Is it that the curate bird has shat upon their lists? Great social commentary!!!!
