GNU, n. An animal of South Africa, which in its domesticated state resembles a horse, a buffalo and a stag. In its wild condition it is something like a thunderbolt, an earthquake and a cyclone.   A hunter from Kew caught a distant view   Of a peacefully meditative gnu,  And he said: 'I'll pursue, and my hands imbrue   In its blood at a closer interview.'  But that beast di. -Ambrose Bierce
