“A Vocabularized Geyser”

Now there is more to a bluejay than any other animal. He has got more different kinds of feeling. Whatever a bluejay feels he can put into language, and not mere commonplace language, but straight out and out book talk, and there is such a command of language. You never saw a bluejay get stuck for a word. He is a vocabularized geyser…. He talks the best grammar of all the animals. – “Moral Lecture” 1895 -Mark Twain
