On a Monday for the Birds

Sesame Street provide Big Bird. Boston had a legendary dibbling Bird. Lynyrd Skynyrd sang Free Bird. Many famous character birds are etched in cartoon history as Tweety Bird, Daffy Duck, Roadrunner, Foghorn Leghorn with his encounters with the pesky chicken hawk, and countless others.

Recent news has brought us a few oddities in nature regarding birds. Hollywood, through the genius of Alfred Hitchcock, gave us The Birds, which isn’t about a number of hooligans standing on the corner giving the bird to those passing by. But the movie did inspire this great spoof that is for your Monday Morning Entertainment. Thank you Melissa.

  1. Not quite to the point of attack, but I have seen gaggles of construction workers appear from nowhere to hoot and holler at a particularly attractive (and usually scantily clad) female walking past the construction site. And it can TRULY be terrifying!
    By the by, did the blackbirds in Alabama take offence at this and all try to fly away at the same time, thus crashing into each other and dying? πŸ˜‰

    • John,
      Regarding the blackbirds in Alabama, your previous explanation the influence of the Saudi capture of an Israeli agent seems to be gaining recognition.

      • Now, now, Melissa, I said no such thing! My reference was simply to some bird-brained birds. I would never, EVER, insult the fine people of Alabama and all the great contributions they have made to society like…um…er… well, all their great contributions! πŸ˜‰
        And I would NEVER root against Alabama for Oregon! Nothing against Oregon – just too many friends south of the Mason-Dixon line (yes, I’m a dang Yankee from Chicago). So my apologies for any unintended insults, and a rousing “Roll, Tide!” (That is the right battle cry, yes? What I know about college sports could fit on the head of a pin, with room left for the Constitution!) πŸ˜€

        • Melissa, that isn’t fear, it’s the sound of brain death. As in, hook me to an EEG, and get a flat line. My goodness, not mentioning NASCAR, and me a gearhead and former fan! (Until they brought out that silly “Car Of Tomorrow” where they’re all driving the same dang thing!) I owe you and the state of Alabama a HUGE apology! See, kids, that’s what happens when you take a few Vicodin. Instant coma-on-wheels! (I can’t apologise for the sports cheer, ’cause I honestly have NO idea which team or school you’re talking about! I said I don’t no nuthin’ ’bout no college sports!)
          And now I know there are at least two gorgeous ladies in Alabama. The USS Alabama (the WW2 battleship) and you. (And that’s high praise from me, a lifelong WW2 historian!) Forgive a migraine-infested drugged-out idiot, please? πŸ˜€

    • Bless you, dear lady, and best of luck to your team. May Oregon (fill in the proper team name hear) suffer a most ignominious defeat at the hands of the clearly superior Alabamans! (Trust me, that’s about as coherent a thought or sentence you’re gonna get outta me today!)

      • Wow … I step away for a few hours and two with quick wits are throwing all sorts of stuff at one another. Bottom line, I loved it … great stuff … and I see John is trying to schmooze his way back into good graces. Oh how both of you will appreciate the new post. Oh I love the music and the video. Thanks for visiting and the entertainment.

        • Oh, my friend, you think that’s my best smooze? (No offence, my most lovely and creative Melissa. πŸ˜‰ ) That was just a heartfelt apology for a moment of braindeath! Now, offer me something I really want (and that varies from nanosecond to nanosecond), and you will see a smooze (ain’t it SCHMOOZE?) thick enough to slide the afore-mentioned battleship from Alabama overland to the westernmost tip of Alaska with the pressure of a feather! (Someone once referred to my schmoozing as being smooth as “oil [crap]on ice”. How smooth IS owl stuff?) If you want a sample, I need Melissa’s permission (so I don’t embarrass the you-know-what out of her), then I’ll see what I can come up with off the top of my head! πŸ˜€

        • John,
          Well hey …. at least a sense of humor shines through the BS. But hey …. as I’ve posted before … Melissa scares me! But she tells me she’s actually as mellow as a kind pet.

          Hey …. and thanks for the spelling error note.

        • Well, Frank, to be honest, she kinda scares me, too! (Warning! Sexist comment to follow! PC filters shutting down!) And I happen to find that SEXY! (Oh Lord, take cover, here come the lawsuits!) Seriously, I do actually like women that scare me a little. No wall-flowers for me, no thank you. Besides, you NEED a woman who can kick your butt to keep you in line, otherwise you get soft and you start complaining about a little bit of snow in Cincinnati! πŸ˜‰
          (PLUG! PLUG! PLUGGING YOUR NEXT POST!) πŸ˜€
          Okay, I’ve made sexist comments that should bombard me with posts, and I’ve made comments on your newer post (PLUG! PLUG!) that should also get a ton of posts. What’s my percentage? πŸ˜‰

    • Melissa, you continue to beguile me with your beauty of spirit, intrigue me with your intellect, and bewitch me with your wit. Of course you come from the South. Only the brilliance of Southern sun and the warmth of Gulf breezes could grow such a truly wondrous flower as you! πŸ˜‰
