In the Great Computer Crash of '99, I lost two bookmarks for pages
that list odd, funny, unusual, or punny binomials for plants, animals,
and microbes.  Does anyone on the list happen to have any they can
post?  We're at the nomenclature stage of teaching grad and undergrad
systematic botany, and it would liven things up to have some fun
