A Congratulations card featuring a rhea and text ‘By Jove, Congratulations’
Rheas are large, flightless birds with grey-brown plumage, long legs and long necks, similar to an ostrich but a bit smaller and more delicate in appearance.
By Jove is a phrase that means By Jupiter and is of course and exclamation of surprise. It is used either by upper-middle class people or by anyone with a sense of humour regarding the English social classes.
The word Jove comes from the Latin Iovis, which means to shine. Somewhere along the line the letter I was swapped and became a J and the word became Jupiter, the god of ancient mythology.
