The first and most obvious rooster is an adult male chicken (did you know that a rooster less than a year old is called a cockerel?). By the way, the Wikipedia article on the rooster has more information than I would ever want to know about this particular bird. Not going any further with that one.
Check out some of these other interesting results:
- Rooster.com: a site for vacation rentals
- Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival (Martinsville, Virginia)
- Rooster Cogburn: the character in True Grit made famous by John Wayne (1975) and then reprised by Jeff Bridges (2010)
- Roosters Men's Grooming Center: "The classic American barbershop for the 21st century man" (locations in 21 states and the District of Columbia)
- Rooster's Coal Fired Pizza & Tap House: Do you really need an explanation of this one? I don't care where they are, I want to go. :)
Now for the last laugh (so to speak). The one image that pops into my head when I hear the word rooster? Foghorn Leghorn, of course. "That boy ... I say, that boy is about as sharp as a bowling ball." My all-time favorite rooster.
My plans for the weekend include a possible excursion to a local writers' organization meeting in the morning, laundry, writing, and a whole lot of reading. What about you?
Until tomorrow, read a book. It's good for you!
