@chiphilton – actually, there IS a pill he could take to make the peacock show up . . . and a bunch of other stuff as well. But I digress.
The peacock is in cahoots with Tolec of the Andromeda Council, which kidnapped Jay-Bird in order to turn him into a genetically modified super-soldier in the ongoing war against the Reptilian Forces which have been hiding in the Indian Ocean. In fact, the peacock was SUPPOSED to seek out and destroy the evil One Armed Coach failed in that mission due to a heart condition resulting from ingesting tattoo ink.
The government is currently trying to locate the peacock in order to dissect it and find out its secret. The girlfriend is a government planted femme fatale’ on a mission to capture the peacock. Meanwhile, Jay-Bird is has taken over the body of Gil Thorpe, which is why Mimi has been . . . “particularly satisfied” . . . in recent years due to Gil’s sudden and remarkable frenzied energy.
This, however, is only a subterfuge since Jay-Bird is ostensibly on a mission for the planet Cricket which is hell bent on earth’s destruction since the publication of their military and state secrets in the Official Rules of Cricket book. The attacking forced don’t realize it yet, but they will soon find that their efforts to eradicate the Truly Stupid from the cosmos is doomed to failure when Peacock Boy starts playing his magic flute, which actually casts a summoning spell. The spell summons demons (regularly mistaken for the characters in “Where the Wild Things Are” who will ultimately turn on their summoners and will seek revenge until it is discovered that, as a goose, she must fly south for the winder, thus rendering further efforts moot.
