Culture Vulture

The Culture Vulture flies about looking for carrion and finds a vast array of rotting popular culture to feast on. Cinematic roadkill, leftover cliche ideas, expired copyrights, and picked-over carcasses of postmodernity attract the Vulture's attention. The Culture Vulture has also developed an ability to sit on its backside (or haunches) in a peculiar almost-human way, with its tailfeathers either spread behind it or bent underneath. This way the creature can watch a lot of television and enjoy the bloody carnage that in a suitable ripening time can be its next meal. Why do so much shopping and cooking when dinner is easily provided to you already prepared? The Culture Vulture is the Buzzard with the Buzz.
