The problem with this is that Sen~or Droolcup actually *is* an ordinary
inhabitant of Twin Peaks, just like Bobby or Donna.  We know this
because he was at his Great Northern job and available for Albert to
interrogate after the wacky encounter opening this season's premiere.
Real owls like Bob or the Giant are manifestations that appear and
disappear magically.

I have Droolcup down as another endearing psychic grotesque like
Margaret; as opposed to a plain grotesque like Nadine or this... Dick.
