For that matter, how about a flying pig? Then at least outsiders will get
You know, a slightly lean, brightly smiling, winged angel-pig with what
might or might not be a curly tail.
Hey, he could have a cape, like Super Pig.
Think about it, you'll learn to love it.

Octopi and ants may also be good, if they have wings.
