Random n@.

1. As I’ve said before, when Sonni Abatta sends you a link, you post the damn thing, even if someday she links me to a totally “interesting” article on the official grass of the state of Pennsylvania.

She writes:

“They are sociable and gentle, monogamous, good parents and great athletes.” Guess who?!

The Polamalus?   Wrong.   Is Sonni Abatta a pigeon lover?

Also, they forgot “bridge bringer downers.”

(h/t to NC Burgher, too)

2.  The “Steely McBeam?  WTF?” group on Facebook now has 213 members, while two “Get rid of Steely McBeam” groups have a total of about 2,000 members.  “Send Steely McBeam back to McDonaldland” has 122 members.  Shockingly, the “I love Steely McBeam” group has 8 members, one of who states that “Steely’s Mc’Beam’ is mine!”

3.   The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting this winter will be a terrible one for the Burgh.  PittGirl predicts that the Farmer’s Almanac is a load of horse shit.  True story.

4.   Go here to take a good look at the face of the man that left his toddler in a sweltering car while he went into a porn shop/theatre.  The toddler was in hysterics when found.  Then if you ever see that man on the street, would you kick him in the nuts for me and tell him, “That’s from PittGirl, you asshole.”  Thanks!

5.   Hang out with a guy who knows OJ and whole bunches of people I’ve never seen before in my life?  Yeah, no thanks.  Get over yourself.

6.   Did you guys watch Georgia beat Japan with a home run in extra innings in the Little League World Series over the weekend?

And did you see the cute little Japanese kid who was hugging the kid from Georgia and just sobbing into his chest because they had just lost, and the kid from Georgia was patting him comfortingly on the back while looking over at his friends like, “Help.”  Awesome.

You can watch the video here.

    Anyone who still pays for porn these days instead of “enjoying” it for free via that there Interweb, in the privacy of their own Momma’s Basement, while they neglect their offspring… is certainly subject to the laws of Darwin.

    My daughter and I actually watch the Little League World Series (couldn’t take Detroit beating up our Yankees anymore). Those Japanese kids were the cutest.

    I’m so with you on the pigeons, Pittgirl. One dive-bombed my CAR while I was driving home last night. If not for some very agile steering, I’d have been trying to see the road through feathers and blood caked on my windshield. Effing winged rats.

    Pensgirl, I once had my car pigeon-bombed so bad I was ashamed to get in it and drive it to the carwash and ashame to walk away from it and someone recognize that that was my car under all that crap. Finally I looked around to see if anyone was looking, quickly jumped in, and drove it to the nearest carwash. Dem Damn Pigeons!!!!

    Something is amiss and out of place
    When a rat with wings wears an avian face.

    6. If you watch the video of the two boys hugging in slow motion….it becomes something really, really beautiful.

    “Street pigeons are kind of like homeless people. If you were to take those pigeons and domesticate them, give them a bath everyday, they would materialize into a much more attractive bird.”

    Yeh –a much more attractive bird with a crack/crystal meth habit who also happens to carry a box cutter in his back pocket.

    #1 – There was a video story that goes along with the pigeon story. It was replayed on CBS’s Sunday Morning Show this past weekend. Did you know pigeons can fly up to 60 mph? Just a little slower than the the PA Gov’ner on the Turnpike.

    4. You would think that some of the city’s finer porn-related emporiums would have little ball pits like at IKEA where you could leave your kids while you shop. You need to know the kiddies are safe while you browse the new fetish dvds and vibrating dildos. I expect that Luke will be moving forward on this issue in the fall election.
