Hey, that's a nice looking owl! It's pretty calm right now, but by the looks of those talons, it's capable of delivering several angry inches of pain if it gets a mind to.

O RLY?

When Used

Owl.gif
You put the sleeping snowy owl in your Familiar-Gro™ Terrarium.

The owl opens one eye, and says to you, sleepily, "Don't take any crap from that punk with the scar -- you were here first." before settling back into its nap.

You decide to name him Gratchell.

References

  • The fact that this hatchling is acquired through the zapping of a yo-yo is a reference to the Vertigo comics title The Books of Magic, created by Neil Gaiman. The protagonist, Tim Hunter, learns that magic is real when Doctor Occult turns his yo-yo into an owl, aptly named Yo-Yo (not a snowy owl, though).
  • In the Harry Potter books, Harry has a snowy Owl called Hedwig, who happens to be sleeping a lot. "Punk with a scar" refers to Harry, who has a scar on his forehead. The line "you were here first" is a reference to the fact that Tim Hunter (who has a number of coincidental similarities to Harry Potter) is sometimes accused of being a Harry Potter ripoff, but was in fact created well before Harry Potter was.
  • "Several angry inches" indirectly refers to Harry's owl by way of the movie title Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
  • The hidden "O RLY?" refers to the infamous internet meme.
