Where Does He Come Up With This Stuff?: Angry Birds Edition

Over the past 6 months or so, we've learned that Angry Birds are a big hit among young boys all around the world. Elias was slowly introduced to it by way of friends who liked it, but when we returned to the States, he began playing the game on Grandma's iPhone. He, of course, thought it was super fun, and another Angry Birds fan was born. So then the next time Grandma was at the store, she saw a box of Angry Birds Cheese Nips, which she knew Elias would love, so she got them. And he did. Not only does he enjoy the tasty crackers, but he also loves looking at the box where all the Angry Birds are there together.

For reasons beyond my comprehension, he decided to make up names for each of the Angry Birds. Therefore, these are their new names:
Red one = Mado
Black one = Moodo
White one = Meedo
Yellow one = Tofasar (That's pronounced toe-fuh-sahr. I have no idea.)
Blue one = Charlie
Bahaha! Oh, and as mentioned in my last post, the green pig is named Guido.

So that's all well and good, but here's where it gets really funny. My dad is a backyard birdwatcher, and so he keeps birdfeeders that attract all sorts of birds. Elias and I have really gotten into the birdwatching as well, and Elias has now identified a real-life bird to be the equivalent of each of the Angry Birds! Let me introduce to you the identities of each one!
So we'll be sitting at the table with the birdfeeder outside, and Elias will suddenly shout "Hi, Charlie!" or "It's Meedo!" So we'll look to discover a blue jay or nuthatch at the feeder. And there can be any number of the same bird on the feeder - the 10 goldfinches in our field of vision are all named Tofasar.

So I don't know where my kid comes up with this stuff, but it's fun!

*Thanks to the Angry Birds Wiki for the images of the Angry Birds. I also learned there that each bird already has a name. We're going to stick with Elias' interpretation.
