  • The gillygaloo was a bird of colorful plumage and fine melodious song, native to the remote forests of Wisconsin, that was unusually well-adapted to nesting on the steepest of slopes. The gillygaloo laid square eggs so that they wouldn't roll downhill.

    Accordingly, these eggs were a valuable commodity for the lumberjacks. When hardboiled, they made excellent dice.
