Somebody burnt a Dodo? What?
The last stuffed dodo used to reside in Oxford Museum of Natural History, where is was seen by a certain chap called Dodson, who used it as a character is some kid's fantasy or other. Said bird was apparently soon burnt as it was getting motheaten. Sic transit gloria mundi. So says "The Annotated Alice" by Martin Gardner. I wonder how bad they smell. Myself I can never get one to stay alight (puff, puff...).
Tim: Who has put sago pudding in my Jubilee sneakers?
Graeme: That's not sago pudding, Tim.
Bil: It's dodo do's.
