If I Saw a Bird that Looked Like That, I Would Have Nightmares for Weeks

Ah, BC: a legacy strip that is actually very slightly funnier now that its original creator has shuffled off this mortal coil. A couple of years ago, this joke would have involved God and implied that the readers were damned.
