As in the B-17 of the same name

Mother was a goose, father was a swan.   He got tired of all the others calling him ugly

Flown by Col. Frank Kurtz. Today, "The Swoose" is the oldest surviving B-17 and the only early "D" model still in existence.

BTW, Kurtz later named his daughter after his plane - Swoosie. Yes, *that* Swoosie Kurtz.

Thanks for your participation, guys!

This one I was thinking of....

A 1867 satirical poem by

Huckebein is a reference to a trouble-making raven (Hans Huckebein der Unglücksrabe) from an illustrated story in 1867 by Wilhelm Busch
