Friday Pigeon Poop

Okay, boys. I’ll bump the There down.


Now your co-workers won’t think you’re trolling the Hot Shirtless Studs sites.

Would you rather look at pigeon stuff? Wish granted.

1. Take a look at the Shaw Report in Entertainment Weekly, as scanned in by reader Jill:

I have no idea who any of those people are, but if I had to guess, I’d go with reality stars of some sort.

But, seriously, penguins are out? Pigeons are in?

Adorable, loving, soft, cuddly, chin-scritch-worthy, entertaining penguins are out and poop-bombing, air-diving, disease-riddled, evil-doing, bridge-destroying knowing bastards are in?

The only time I can imagine pigeons being IN and penguins being OUT is if they discover that pigeon blood cures cancer and that penguins eat kittens.

And even then, who knows. Maybe kittens are delicious.

2. Reader Rebecca snapped this photo in Philly, much like the one previously spotted in New York:

No questions asked, because, you see, someone stole this pigeon. Clearly. It didn’t just, I don’t know, fly away.

How awesome would it be if someone finds a pigeon and is all, “Well, it’s the darndest thing.  It answers to Pierre and has a white spot on his head, but he will not eat a freaking jellybean.”

    Ok I’m from GA and we don’t really have pigeon problems like y’all, however, I hate them so much based on how awful they look on tv. Ugh! Love the blog. Avid follower.

    #3 unsatisfied. Even as a kid, I always cheered for Dick Dastardly.

    I think I had Pierre for dinner. We called him “city chicken.”

    We’ve emailed I think twice and I’ve your stuff on a semi-regular basis.

    I IMMEDIATELY thought of you when I read that PIGEONS were IN in Entertainment Weekly. You cast a big, pigeon-hating shadow.

    I live in Philly and that’s about par for the level of stupid we have going on here. However, I’d like to point out that that’s not a Philly number. Someone originally from Jersey lost that pigeon. It actually makes more sense now.
