Webcomic description

In this world, kakapo parrots took one a very different path of evolution because they got domesticated alongside other companion animals like dogs and cats. In this comic, we focus specifically on one kakapo Word who like his flying cousins, is curious, playful and full of personality.

Hello and please, call me Mary.

If we have any anglers in the audience, I too would like to know. For science!
Ha ha! We've all done stuff as kids. I do wonder... would fish actually be more enticed by jelly worms than actual ones?
Oh, childhood experiments! XD Though I think trying to fish with gummy worms would be better than just-about any of mine. I think the last one of mine was when, as a teenager, I tried barking back at dogs. XD I stopped after I nearly gave a tiny terrier a heart attack because I could match the timbre of a very, very big dog! I couldn't bear to scare a dog that badly again.
This is based on a childhood experience when my brother, sister and I discovered that fish love caramel popcorn when we gave some to the fish at the zoo. The outcome from my mom was not as positive as James' is here as she was angry and scolded us because feeding the animals was not allowed.
Author Note
Indeed! :) I think the problem was compounded by some of my paints coming in tiny tins, but it's hard to remember back that far. I don't remember any tubes of paint, only glue, toothpaste, and a particular brand of tomato sauce. (It was good.) I think some paints were powders which you had to mix with water, but I'm not sure now. The first paints I clearly remember were dayglo paints in squeezy plastic bottles about the size of jam jars. I thought they were strange because they were ready to use straight out of the bottle.
