Hugh Grant?? It's been a while since I saw it, but surely you mean Peter Capaldi? They're not dissimilar in appearance.
I could have done without AD's tits... mine are much more colourful and acrobatic. They seem to be hiding for the winter now though. I suppose I could coax them out by filling the feeder with sunflower seeds again.
Walrus is right - any dragon or serpent could be called a worm (often spelt wyrm) and it is Germanic in origin ((Old English: wyrm, Old High German: wurm, Old Norse: ormr). Wyrms are usually wingless dragons or the giant serpents associated with wells. Wyverns are winged dragons with two legs and dragons are winged with four or more legs.
