Pidgee, pidgee, pidgee!

Three pigeon things to share:

1.  Further proof that pigeons are evil knowing bastards:


They’re fed by agents of the Dark Side.  I could totally see Satan and Emperor Palpatine being in cahoots.

Also, I don’t recommend it, but if you stare at the pigeons’ red eyes long enough and really focus, you can hear shrieking coming from hell.

(h/t hello haha narf)

2.  From Thoughtful Riot’s blog where he is writing haiku for each of Rachel Sager’s 52 Ills illustrations.  He managed to work “cloaca” in there.  Brilliant!

3.  Scott, the owner and Chief Operating Scarer of Scarehouse posted this photo on his twitter account and titled it “The Pigeon Whisperer”:


At first I thought, “This old man is feeding the pigeons and is surely an agent of Palpatine’s.”

But then I realized he’s just farting on the pigeons.

Carry on, gross old man.  Carry on.

    I think the pigeons are taking turns flying up and pecking his ass. Maybe he was being bad, in their knowing red eyes…

    Using similar “She’s a witch!” logic from Monty Python’s “Holy Grail” –


    1) The Yankees are the Evil Empire


    2) Evil knowing bastards flock to the cloaca of a cranky old Phillies fan

    then I must conclude


    and the Buccos of Suckitude are the ultimate proof.

    Hard to argue with logic like that.

    And, Virginia, as I just noticed the time printed on my comment, did you turn your clock back yet? Or is it some glitch somewhere? The machine I’m typing on shows an hour earlier. Just curious.

    @butcher’s dog, if she’s using WordPress’ software (which I think she is), users have to go and manually adjust for daylight savings time. I know I haven’t done it on my blog yet — of course, all the clocks in my house are an hour fast too, cause I’m lazy like that.

    Just my friendly FYI for the day.

    that same guy feed the pigeons in oakland by the grass lawn near the O, when he breaks up the break he does it by his mouth,…. typical inter species regurgitation situation

    I have to admit that this particular post appealed to my love of Star Wars. A Palpatine reference, Stormtroopers, Dark side…yeah, I was “geeking” out a bit whilst I read this. Sad that the “evil knowing bastards” are now apart of that though.
