Sure, we all know that human beings used animals to represent certain emotions, political beliefs, economic attitudes and social themes. Doves are a symbol for peace, Democrats are donkeys and Republicans are elephants.
And who could forget that Bluebird of Happiness?

- The Egret of Regrets
- The Rabbit of Repetitive Motion Disorders
- The Ferret of Fetishism
- The Llama of Lustful Intentions
- The Goat of Gender Confusion
- The Treefrog of Terminal Diseases
- The Duck of Depression
