|Black vultures, Coragyps atratus, are dramatic looking birds. They're big, with just over a five foot wingspan, and have creepy looking featherless skin heads, the better to eat carrion with. Click to enlarge for a closer look.|
"Fear the vulture, and the vulture will come. Fear nothing, and you are the vulture." Suzy Kassem
"Don't play dead with the vulture. That's exactly what they want." Kevin Nealon
And a couple of vulture jokes:
Two vultures eating a dead clown. First vulture says to the other, "does this taste funny to you?"
A vulture boards a plane with three dead mice. The flight attendant says,"I'm sorry, only two carrions per passenger."
