I tried to memorize ‘The Raven’ one time, but I never quite got all the way thorough.

I took the munchkin to a small city zoo the other day and one of the animals they had on display was a raven. It totally creeped me out when it started talking. Luckily it didn’t say anything like “Nevermore”. The only word I heard it say was “Poncho”. : P

nevermore

That’s funny,... they can be taught to speak like parrots do. Someone should teach that bird to say Nevermore. Poncho Nevermore … :-)

One of my favourite characters in the Discworld books is a raven called Quoth. Or, to put it another way, Quoth the Raven.

He doesn’t do the ‘n word’ :)
