A Missouri senator is taking aim at
the Kansas Jayhawk.

Sen. Dan Clemens is sponsoring legislation what would declare
the Kansas Jayhawk the official game bird of the state of Missouri.

But Clemens doesn't mean it as an honor. His bill is a satirical
way to highlight how the University of Missouri Tigers shot down
the University of Kansas Jayhawks in football this year.

It just so happens that the Tigers and Jayhawks are to meet on
the basketball court Saturday.

The Republican senator from Marshfield is an alum of the
University of Missouri. He acknowledges his bill is meant more for
fun than as a serious effort.

For the record, Missouri already has an official game bird. It's
the bobwhite quail.
