The 14½ lb Budgie

Many years ago, was discovered by Amerigo Vespucci and was named after him, until people got tired of living in a place called 'Vespuccia' and changed its name to 'America'.

Does anybody know what happened to the paperwork. I know Columbus won it off him in a card game, but who owns the patent on America these days, does anyone know? They really should sue the government or something.
