If you need help understanding what's going on there, the xkcd Time Wiki may be useful.

I went to the transfer station to drop off some old things (they were outside and rusted, no one would want them) and I saw a peacock on top of the CAT. At first I assumed it was fake, but it looked at a flying bug and eventually hopped down to sniff some trash. I have no idea where it came from. Trash peacock.

Oh. Thanks. I only saw the trash, not the peacock.

Which reminds me of Julie Kane's poem with the phrase "trash, or egret?"

Spoiler:
Egrets
by Julie Kane

You have to love them
for the way they make takeoff
look improbable:

jogging a few steps,
then heaving themselves like sacks
of nickels into

the air. Make them wear
mikes and they’d be grunting
like McEnroe lobbing

a Wimbledon serve.
Then there’s the matter of their
feet, which don’t retract

like landing gear nor
tuck up neatly as drumsticks
on a dinner bird,

but instead hang down
like a deb’s size tens from
the hem of her gown.

Once launched, they don’t so
much actively fly as blow
like paper napkins,

so that, seeing white
flare in a roadside ditch, you
think, trash or egret?—

and chances are it’s
not the great or snowy type,
nearly wiped out by

hat plume hunters in
the nineteenth century, but
a common cattle

egret, down from its
usual perch on a cow’s
rump, where it stabs bugs.

Whoever named them
got it right, coming just one
r short of regret.
