We are going to help canonical come up with new version names.

Here's how it works.

You must name the next 5 versions in sequence from where the last poster finishes off. If you reach the end of the alphabet, start again.
You must stick to the standard naming method (adjective + animal).
You must create a new adjective / animal combo. No repetitions. No using ones canonical used for it's releases.

No double posting for extra credit.

***edit. Removed the score system. No-one was using it anyway***

Have fun, here's my starter.

Angry Aardvaark
Beligerant Bison
Cool Cat
Dreary Dragon (yes, mythical allowed thanks to 9.04)
Elegant Elephant

Does anyone remember the old spew program that would generate random "headlines" from lists of nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs? It seems like a variant is posting to the forum...
