More more hate mail! Yay!

Ok.  Where’s the pigeon-lovers forum that has linked to my blog because suddenly, the pigeon lovers are on my case like Benny’s minions.  An email from Cheryl:

You should be ashamed of yourself, picking on defensiveless pigeons. May I remind you that kicking pigeons violates animal cruelty laws in Pennsylvania. Do you kick babies too? They carry more diseases that are a threat to you than a pigeon?

I know I shouldn’t be giving fuel to their fire, but come on.  These emails and their ridiculous lack of a sense of humor are kinda hilarious.

Also?  Defensiveless?

    I just have this vision of ACTUAL PIGEONS sitting in a cyber cafe somewhere typing these out. Everyone’s looking at them. One pigeon is dictating (thus the incompetent grammer/spelling).

    “Ask if she kicks babies, Carl!”

    “Yeah… those babies are dirty.”

    Roasting a pigeon is easy enough, take a dressed bird and stick a sprig of thyme, a clove of garlic (unpeeled) and a couple of juniper berries up its cavity and rub the whole thing with butter or goose fat. Crank your oven up high then ’seal’ the pigeon breast side down in a hot pan of oil and butter, flip it over and spoon some of the fat over the carcasse and then turn it over again so it’s breast side down.

    Pittgirl, you have an ally here. Pigeons=seagulls in my book. Like the late Bill Burns from KDKA used to call pigeons: Flying Rats. Once, at the beach, a sea gull swooped down and stole my mom’s hot dog right out of her hand as she was about to take the first bite. She was hungry. Wow! was she Pissed. She would attend a seagull shoot.

    Babies don’t poop on my ventilation intake. Pigeons do. Therefore, I am more inclined to shoot pigeons than babies.

    Let’s Do Lunch – that sounds great!

    Actually, and here is where my redneck roots come out – I have eaten dove. Which is just a really pretty pigeon and is a much of a pain to farmers as pigeons are to city folk. Yes, I grew up on a farm.

    Just dove breast, which is tiny. My brother would procur them (yeah, shoot them) and dress them. Then we would take the nice little breast meat and throw it on the grill. Yum.

    We then decided they would be even better if we wrapped them in bacon and grilled them. Double. Yum. Like those great chicken liver appetizers, but without having to eat liver.

    Anyway, dove (pretty pigeon) makes a lovely appetizer before a huge steak dinner.

    I love animals way more than people, but pigeons are cruel and disgusting. They dive-bomb you on purpose!!

    These pigeon lovers are odd to say the least!

    Cheryl,
    From what I hear, Pittgirl only kicks pigeon lovers babies.
    Be afraid, be very afraid. She’s such a threat to society.

    I’m still trying to figure out what “defensiveless” actually means. It’s like some kind of odd double-negative…

    It boggles my mind that people come here regularly and read the blog and yet seem to require closed-captioning for the Humor Impaired.

    I will never forget seeing ‘Keep America Clean – Eat a Pigeon’ on a desk at the CalU library!
    I dont remember too much from college but I remember that.

    defensiveless- to go into a protective state of being without the actual means of protection.

    Sooska, you are dead on. I’ve always referred to sea gulls as “coastal pigeons.”

    That FedEx commercial only proves how evil and stupid pigeons really are. Aren’t the falcons supposed ot eat all those goofy red-eyed bird bastards?

    I believe the late, great Bill Burns did get into trouble for saying something to the effect that you could solve two problems in market square by feeding the pigeons to the homeless hanging around there.

    how about this:

    “pigeons don’t poop on chuck norris — he…..”

    naah, that’s pretty gross.

    Damn girl! You sure do attract the freaks.
    May I suggest one of Pigeon Supporters actually attempt to kick a pigeon? Honesty go try it…chances of you actually connecting are slim to none. What should that tell you? It should tell you that it’s a figure of speach, a joke, a way to show the world the hatred of the pigeon. Oh and in case you forgot, we are allowed to hate pigeons. No where in the constitution or bible or any other document anywhere does it state, “tho shall not hatest the pigeons.”
    As for the pigeon shoots – I know nothing about them that the name does not tell you – there is shooting of pigeons. I’d prefer that the pigeons aren’t tortured first, but I’m not overly concerned about it if hey are. And if they are eating the pigeons after shooting them, all the better. Did I hear someone say circle of life??
    I don’t think the cows should be tortured when they are killed either, that doesn’t mean I’m giving up my steak! Again, circle of life. Ya think the tigers humanely kill the gazelle before eating it?

    Anyone else reminded of the Family Guy episode in which Death went on a date with an animal rights nutjob? He killed her right after claiming that animals don’t make make war. “Not with nuclear arms. You can’t hug your kids with nuclear arms.”

    I personally love pigeons, but it doesn’t stop me from enjoying and laughing at PittGirl’s anti-pigeon rants. I feel the same way about bats, cheese popcorn, and Faith Hill.
