  1. Definitely 'Despicable Me'!! Posted 7 years ago
    1. I saw you make this remark the other day as well, but still don't get it. I watch so little TV and movies these days. Is this a reference to the bald villain character in that movie? Posted 7 years ago
      1. Sorry Ferdy, I wasn't sure if I had said that here or elsewhere. Anyway, I appreciate your lack of time..so here is the picture that makes me think of the movie. Maybe it is just my sense of humour!!

The Marabou Stork, ''Leptoptilos crumeniferus'', is a large wading bird in the stork family Ciconiidae. It breeds in Africa south of the Sahara, occurring in both wet and arid habitats, often near human habitation, especially waste tips. It is sometimes called the "Undertaker Bird" due to its shape from behind: cloak-like wings and back, skinny white legs, and sometimes a large white mass of "hair."
