Too Cute for His Own Good

not sure how those horns could actually be used as weapons. he'd have to really drop his head but then his big nose would get in the way. and how are those wings going to keep him up? it turns out dragons aren't mythical, they're just extinct because they couldn't evolve effectively.

Red Solo Cup and Redhead Silly Clown

NO GREY ON ITS HEAD. and there's a mountain chickadee which, i assume, eats only mountains. and the mexican chickadee who [redacted due to racism].
