That's owl, folks!

Because of B. scandiacus' vast range, it goes by a number of names: "Comhachag shneachda" (Scotland), "Sneugle" (Denmark), "lumekakk (Estonia), "shiro fukuroo" (Japan) and "boid" (Brooklyn, NY)...

Get me Jeff Goldblum, Peter Weller, James Wan and have a script on my desk by morning.

There was one at DeKorte Park in the NJ meadowlands a couple of years back.  I was out for a walk for lunch.  I came around a corner and unintentionally spooked the owl into taking off.  About a dozen bird photographers with expensive lenses called me all sorts of names.  They were really nasty about it.  A-holes.

Please, please stop this. I'd rather watch farktv or click on funny or die links all day long than click another of these.

Owls! Huh! What good are they? You can't use an owl to drill through concrete.

One of the coolest things about owls (and that is seldom mentioned) is that the conical ring of feathers around their eyes actually act like cupping your ears (parabolic dishes, if you will) and direct sound into the ear slits, one of which is slightly longer than the other to assist with stereoscopic hearing. They have great vision, which is necessary to make the killing strike when hunting, but it's their hearing that does most of the grunt up to the final approach.

Why would a barred owl respond to "Hey snowy owl"?  He knows you're not calling him

Luckily, Sad Potatoe links have their own tag.  Some might even say it's a warning sign, saying "Don't click here - you'll be bored into a coma".
