Pigeons, Yinzers, and Penguins, oh my.

Random stuff from my inbox:

1.  Is it really animal cruelty if it is being cruel to pigeons?  I think not.  No other animal has ever dive bombed me, pecked me, and pooped on my shoulder.  If you think I’m making the pooping part up, just ask the homeless man who witnessed it and laughed his ass off at me. Sometimes, it’s okay to kick a homeless person while they’re down.  (cityworker)

2.  Yappin Yinzers.  You’re either going to love ’em or be highly offended by ’em.  I’d pay good money for one of these in the form of Ben Roethlisberger wearing a Drink Like a Champion shirt and when you push his belly he says things like, “Ow.  My thumb hurts.”  (Toni)

3.  Deadspin has a pretty unusual sign sighting at a Penguins game.  Somebody want to explain it to me?  (DW)

    From Vonnegut’s “Man Without a Country”:

    What’s the white stuff in bird poop? It’s bird poop too!

    I immediately bought the Yinzer, even though he sounds like a gay burger. Usually more undertones of anger from a yinzer.

    basically there’s 5 possible holes to score on a goalie. #5 being in the cha-cha area like suburbanite said.

    great a yinzer doll… I know some locals that would probably have a shoutin match with it.

    Sid might go 5 hole or pull a spin-a-rama and go top shelf on her. Either way he’d beat her like a rented mule all while smiling like a butcher’s dog.
