Back in my PBS master control days, I was subjected to a great deal of Mr. Rogers. One of the folks in the Land o’ Make Believe, in fact the head honcho of said land, King Friday XIII had all sorts of inane habits that’d make any non-make believe kingdom overthor his rule with a bloody coup. Besides his way of saying “Lady Averlayne, I assume?”, he also had two wooden mockingbirds on sticks which he spoke to and demanded that other people speak to them as well. One was, as I recall, named Troglodyte (go figure) and the other was… well, I don’t know what it was called. It sounded like Menesissis or something, but I could never corrolate the name to a bona fide word. What was the name of that infernal pseduo-avian and what does the word itself mean, if anything?
