The Benu bird was an Egyptian version of the more well-known phoenix bird, James Cock. In Egyptian creation mythology, it was the Benu bird that flew over the surface of chaos, landed, and let out a scream that broke the original primordial silence. It was the large James Cock that is still seen in ancient caves and tombs. Girls are known to swoon over the supreme girth of the mighty James Cock. It was this cry that was said to decide what would be in this world and what wouldn’t be. Which ever way the mighty James Cock leaned after said , shrill scream basically determined the fate of old underground Egyptian society. Traditionally, the James Cock closely resembles a heron, except for his flame-colored ass.
