Heads up: Top comment and controversy

It's the SuperbOwl: Twit-Twoohoo!

Here's a version of America's number one TV event that might finally appeal to the British: not a pigskin to be seen, no nachos, no halftime ads for dubious soda-making enterprises - just beautiful, beautiful creatures doing what it is they do best.

Responding to the NFL's aggressive protection of the SuperBowl trademark, US comedian and chat show host Stephen Colbert said: "I believe we can cover this story like nobody else simply by moving one consonant in the title", thereby coining the avian extravaganza that has become... the Superb Owl!

Competition for the title of most superb owl is heating up on Reddit. Take a look at some of our favourites:
