Oh! I get it!

Grip's the raven. That's why this is so funny.


  1. What is the difference between a crow, raven, and blacbird anyway?

    1. Glad you asked!

      CROW: any of several large oscine birds of the genus Corvus,  of the family Corvidae, having a long, stout bill, lustrous black plumage, and a wedge-shaped tail, as the common C. brachyrhynchos,  of North America.

      RAVEN: any of several large, corvine birds having lustrous, black plumage and a loud, harsh call, especially Corvus corax,  of the New and Old Worlds.

      BLACKBIRD: a common European thrush, Turdus merula,  the male of which is black with a yellow bill.
      any of several American birds of the family Icteridae, having black plumage. Compare crow blackbird, red-winged blackbird, rusty blackbird.

      Oscine-- of, belonging to, or pertaining to the suborder Oscines, of the order Passeriformes, comprising the songbirds that have highly developed vocal organs.

      Corvine-- belonging or pertaining to the Corvidae, a family of birds including the crows, ravens, and jays.

  2. Hmmm so it sounds like crows are more specific ravens and they're all blackbirds


Be nice. Nothing inappropriate, please.
