The origin of The Buttfeather
All hail LeaKP.

I do love to meander back through the ol' Scrapbook.
THIS IS FROM FOUR YEARS AGO TODAY!
Performed by a perching parrot, the act of turning the back and hoisting the tail, thus exposing the nether-feathers in a display of defiance, mockery, or mischief.
Buttfeather, buttfeathers, buttfeathering, buttfeathered
"The bird would often buttfeather his owner when feeling ignored."
Synonym: "moon" (slang, obsolete)
Illustration (using the now obsolete term "mooning".
A while later our dear Kentuckienne added a rousing ballad!
"You say beautiful day, just look at the weather
But stay outta my way or you get the buttfeather.
I’m Rickey the Bird and I own the high ground
I’ll show you the works, both feather and down
Homey, this is my cage, my hen, my chili
You mess with my world and I’ll feather you silly.
The strong gonna crumble, the mighty will fall,
They saw what I did to the Demon Ball
The Devil, Godzilla, and Hannibal Lector
All gonna need a buttfeather protector
Run fast as you can, hide best you can hide,
You’ll never be safe from my under side.
Wherever you go I’ll be up above
And I’m gonna show you some rooster butt love
Look up overhead and BAM! You been served
You puny old humans got what you deserved
You oughta be glad I allowed you to see
The glorious butt feathers underneath me
There was never a sunrise, never a flower,
Compete with my Patagonian power
Come on you hot henz dressed in satin and leathers
We’ll show all the losers the Rickeybutt feathers!"
Thank you, Leah and Kentuckienne, thank you.
The Iliad and the Odyssey got nuthin' on our ol' PF, I tell ya.
