These interwoven pretzel snacks may not insulate very well on their own, but the feathered gown that results will.

Includes hood for all ye brave.

       I'm not sure if this a snack or a garment - but if it's got a hood, I'm all for it.   

       Come summertime, I can always eat my way out of it anyway. As long as there are no ritual killings involved in the manufacturing process.

       Hood added.   

       As to the ritual killings, I guess I could change my business model.

       Pretty low as tech goes, but my, an ornithologists dream.   

       The mtv show "jackass" did a stunt where they went down to a harbor, dressed a man in a wetsuit, and pinned dead fish all over him. as i recall, there were a few interested birds, but most were too timid about getting very close to him...

       Squid, I think you'll find, [luecke]. They did a bread suit for pigeons too. By the way. Why are you called luecke, if you don't mind me asking? (If you do, please ignore but it's been bugging me).

       Strap large pieces of raw meat to a coat and let the condors make fools of the airling industry.
Have a bun for making a coat out of tatsy salty treats [+]

       squeak - i dont mind at all... luecke is my last name. pronounced "lick-y" if you should wish to be proper. i guess i could have been a bit more creative, but i figuered it would be pretty easy to remember...   

       your turn now. i hope for your sake that you dont have the same explanation as me...
luecke, Dec 09 2003
  

       Why is there an "L" on the end of the word? I don't get that part and I bet the explanation is real funny.
k_sra, Dec 09 2003
  

       Quezlcoatl (spelling?) was/is an Aztec or Mayan God with a wierd name. It's a pun. (yeah, I know I'm well informed, can't be bothered to google).   

       [lueke] Well my naming story is dead boring. I couldn't have my first choice name and my twirly chair and car seatbelt thingy had both been driving me insane for about a month (by going *squeak*,if it wasn't obvious)so I kinda had the word "squeak" branded across my frontal lobe.
squeak, Dec 09 2003
  

       Oh that story's not as funny as I had hoped (about the title not your name your [squeakiness]).

       <Pats [k_sra] on head and silently hands him/her a consolotary chocolate biscuit>
squeak, Dec 09 2003
  

       Ooh, a bikkie! (and it's 'her')
k_sra, Dec 09 2003
  

       Well, [k_sra], excuse me for not having your sophisticated sense of humour. Another fine mess you've gotten me into. :P

       Virgin pretzels?! Wha.....!? What do the others do then? I just had one for breakfast (spits repeatedly).
squeak, Dec 10 2003
  

       Non-virgin preztels are the ones that come joined together. ;-) If it's a coat, wouldn't the salt wash off in the rain and the bread-y part get all soggy and gooshy and fall off you in great poopy lumps so it looked like a pterodactyl took a potty break on you? And what's the Aztec connection? Pretzels are German. Also you said something about feathers? I dunno where YOU last ate a pretzel, but they don't have feathers, hun.
spacecadet, Dec 10 2003
  

       [spacecadet] - common sense would clearly dictate that you don't wear it in the rain.
Detly, Dec 20 2003
  

       Spacecadet: I think what's being driven at is that the pretzels will attract birds, so you'll eventually have a live feathered coat. And it amuses me sufficiently to croissant it.
