Reminds me of 20 years ago or so in Dayton. Some guys who will remain 
anonymous were playing the animal callsign badge game. Every time an 
animal call was spotted they would call in for points on 2 mtrs.
If the entire call was an animal such as FR0G, you got lots of points.

Of course, we are all too old to play such silly games now, aren't we?
