Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

OK, it must be endemic to mooses, because I also have the cats ability to sleep endlessly.

And I do, too. Hell, I'm sleeping right now.

As a commercial pilot, I already posses the bird's ability to fly. Ahhhhh the good life. Here today, gone tomorrow. Btw- The view from my "cubicle" will always beat the view from your cubicle.

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”

Ah that takes me back.... as a child in therapy I was stuck between the cat and the bird. The bird has ultimate mobility and a (pet) cat doesn't have a care in the world. I wonder what they would have done if I had said "I wanna be a Gryphon" /end awkward flashback

There is a shrimp I read about that can snap its claws so fast that it creates a bubble of heat hotter than the sun! That would be cool.

Good one, I came here to say the tortoise's ability to not age, but I guess lobster works as well.

They do seem to enjoy it. Nose, butt, sniff and lick the _ick.
If we don't meet any other dogs, the _ick is dirty and I have to wipe it.

As for myself, I think I would prefer the platypuses ability to be both sickeningly adorable and extremely dangerous ^-^

Wow. I expected most people to choose the cat. I chose the fish. One day, the world will be underwater and all you bird people are going to get tired of flying all the time. Plus, I want to visit Atlantis :D
