A reader, (I’ll assume he’s a reader, otherwise how would he have known how much I love pigeons), Mark Denovich sent me this link because he thought I would get a kick out of it. Did I!

Yobs are attempting to lure pigeons into the path of buses as part of a cruel new craze, a bird welfare group claimed.
The Pigeon Control Advisory Service (PiCAS) said it had received complaints from bird lovers in Bristol that youths in the city were throwing food into bus lanes in the hope of seeing pigeons and seagulls run over.
PiCAS has threatened to privately prosecute youngsters involved in the trend.
2. Am I a bad person because the mental image of it all gave me a case of the giggles?
3. Why is the Pigeon Control Advisory Service going to prosecute people who are merely practicing their own form of pigeon control? Just like deer hunters are practicing deer population control.
4. Does the Burgh have a Pigeon Control Advisory Service? If not, can we get one and can I be the CEO and can they pay me $650,000? Actually, my first act as CEO would be to rename it the Pigeon and Turkey Ass Kicking Service.
5. How long before PETA sends me an email?
