The Wildebeest of Inutile Erudition
Salutations, scholars of futures past! I am the Wildebeest of Inutile Erudition, returning once more to assist you with the second installment into the TGAW series. If at any time you notice a word, name or phrase that you don't understand, please check my below compendium of words that are specific to the stories contained within The Great Avian War;a Redundancy. As this tome has been separated into different mini stories, so shall I separate the glossary according to each story. Enjoy!
Book 1: Bears on a Submarine
1. "Monday" - A hideously annoying pop culture song, written by a preteen business accountant that wanted to chronicle the "annoying drudgery that is Monday!". It was made into a song when the author was drunk one night on boxed milk and decided to record it on his karaoke machine. Obviously karaoke technology was not that advanced, but he was unknowingly filmed by some neighborhood kids that were watching him outside his window. They immediately posted it to an online video streaming website, and it went viral.
2. Seaport - The equivalent of an airport, but specializes in maritime transportation instead of aerial. Unfortunately, passengers still have to deal with horribly overpriced tickets, extra fees, lost baggage, crying infants and highly inappropriate security checkpoints.
3. The XXX Games - A brand of entertainment that introduced the world of extreme sports with hardcore porn. A tournament is held every year in the city of Oregasm in the Land of Thuh Chickenz, headlining the best of the best in their field. It is owned and organized by the Canadyun mob, and although much of the activity surrounding the city is illicit, the authorities allow the mob to pretty much do as they please.
4. Canadya - The country that lies north of the territory that was once America (which now consists of the Land of Thuh Chickenz, Flexus, and a mostly unexplored, war-torn wasteland). Citizens, known as Canadyuns, are well known for their hospitality, free healthcare, and general confusion of the difference between bacon and ham.
5. Mockingbirdly - Sarcastic, not unlike the smartass bird for which it was named. These juvenile-like creatures constantly imitate other species just for the fun of it.
