The classification of crows, you could say it's the family name.

Ravens are beautiful birds. Like parrots they can also talk. The jury is still out as to whether they truly understand what they are saying or if they are simply mimicking what they hear.

LIttle girls are good at finding things. A little girl found a lead plate inscribed and buried near Pierre, South Dakota, by the Verendrye brothers on their epic journey westward in 1742 - 1743.

As to swords, though not found by a girl, there is the Sword of Goujian.

It's a little more complicated than that, Farn. But still an interesting tale.

Complicated, schomplicated. :) I'm just telling the tale I read in Bernard DeVoto's The Course of Empire. I recommend it highly, though it is almost 70 years old.

Its kind of pointless when there's only one appropriate name; Giraffy McGiraffepants.

Gerald the Giraffe has a nice ring to it. You should let the Cleveland Zoo know.
