The Birds

No comic book fun today; you'll have to settle for a picture of a poor little Asian kid getting swarmed by voracious, filthy pigeons. I had a similar experience with pigeons in Amsterdam, and although I didn't cry, I felt really dirty afterwards. Pigeons are foul little shit machines.

I think I stole this picture from, the place to go for crash-and-burn videos.

I'd suggest a caption contest, but really the only caption that does this justice is "AAAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHH!!!"

It reminds me of the time one of my friends threw a bag of bird food on a sleeping homeless man in Trafalgar square.

That is cold.

And by "cold" I mean "funny."

The pigeon is a sweet songbird comapred to its Rocky Mtn cousin the Magpie. If you've lived in an urban area it's like the difference between a mouse and a rat.

They shit more than pigeons, they kill other birds, and they are loud.

If you think pigeons are annoying with that cooeing, you need a bird that actually barks at you like a dog. I have a deck off my living room and in the summer the magpies sit on the deck railing and bark at me while I'm watching television in the living room.

I never seen them swarm one person like this photo but I imagine it
would be mighty unpleasant.
