  • *worried about who knows what I do in parks at night*

  • Ah, but it couldn't have been, unless you were walking through a park in the middle of the night! These are nocturnal, these twixt(s)-hell(s)-and-the-white(s)-oak(s) are.

    This is a time for Soundie.

  • I was walking through a park in 1989 and there was an odd noise coming from a stand of trees. At first I thought it went, "chicks are hell and they bite, okay?" But that couldn't have been right. I realised, as a bird flitted above me and shat on my wonderment, that it must have been a twixt-hell-and-the-white-oak.

  • Yep, I love this one. The only thing I can come up with for its origin is my theory that it's an approximation of the bird's call (which is also where it gets its current name).
