"The roadrunner is an authentic bird of the cuckoo family and is found in New Mexico, Arizona and Southern California.  He cannot truly fly but he runs at an unbelievable speed and soars to the tops of the giant cactus.  He is about the same size as a scrawny turkey.  Yes, you will find the roadrunner listed in any good dictionary of the English language, accompanied by his Latin name—his real Latin name, you understand, not those which we invent such as Tidbitius Velocitus or TastyiusFastius."
