Hey, Carl Hiaasen's been warning Florida officials for years, but do they listen?

The perfect storm.

Hitchcock knew.

It's obvious these people have never visited New York City.

EEEEEwwwwww, that's it, just eeeewwwwwww.

Some people don't let the bird droppings bother them and continue to eat lunch around the droppings.

When bird flu hits the States, it's hitting there first. Oh and EEEEEEEWWWWWWW.

I've been complaining about the amount of people spitting on the sidewalks here in Baltimore - I will never, ever complain again.

"Federal law prohibits the bird nests in Orlando from being disturbed."

Okay. Loophole. It says nothing about the birds themselves being disturbed...or the trees. Right ?

*loads shotgun*

*fires up chainsaw*

I think a few of them have moved into the tree over my driveway.

*shakes fist and goes to get firecrackers & a slingshot*

High Anxiety - Whenever you’re near
Ooh, ’Xiety - It’s you that I fear ...

Ami I dating myself?

NTTAWWT, Chianca.

djtonyb - ix-nay on the irecrackers-fay. Did we learn nothing from the exploding whale incident?

ooo, simul in Florida.

*winks @ Blue*

Under excessive bird droppage.

*frowny face*

You know, Jersey's OK by me.

*Counterwink and large towel to KDF*

"You have to brace yourself for the smell," downtown resident James Taylor said. "It is a really bad stench. It is disgusting, absolutely disgusting."
Just yesterday morning, I saw the cypress trees were gone.
Orlando, the birds have all moved into you.
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song,
And I sent it to the channel 6 news crew.
I've seen fire and I've seen rain. I've seen birdy poop that I thought would never end.
I've seen smelly cars when I could not find a fend(er), but I always thought that I'd see you again

Oh, there you are, on the bench.

KDF - At least I'd only have to wash the bird entrails off once...

Great, I leave for Orlando at 7 am tomorrow. So much for sitting at a cafe in the sun...

*powerwashes self off*

*thanks Blue for towel*

"I was walking the other day and got pooed on walking under these trees," Orlando resident Lisa Valentine said. "Somebody told me it was good luck."

Ah yes - the old legend of the Foo Bird from Africa (the abridged version). When the folks were on safari and the poo from the Foo landed on one of the mens shoulders, he started to wipe it off, and his native guide quickly stopped him saying - "NO NO NO - that is good luck!! If the foo sh!ts - wear it!!"

*SNORK* @ and wild applause for Coast Raven!

You can keep it, dear lady.

Um, thank you? I DID say I powerwashed first, ya know!

I only trust powerwashing that I can conduct personally.

Where's Dick Cheney when you need him?

What, you want him to shoot James Taylor?

Ooooh, I've seen fire...BLAM!

Why do you think James stays "Up on the roof"?

My baby James ain't no fool.

Now this is one more reminder that we should be thankful that cows can't fly....

Hanna ~ Amen to that.

*tries to decide whether to slap or *snork* @ or powerwash Blue*


I'm just glad that they attacked James Tayor.

*draws up plans for door-to-door high pressure carwash for Orlando. estimates how many cases of beer he will need keep the power wash "going." decides he'll need to wear a large hat and take along an industrial strength umbrella. decides Orlando residents can thank him later*


Any two out of the three will do just fine, KDF. ;-)

Let's breakout the rice hooray for exploding birds *although that may create a bigger mess*

The best quote from the story:

"Based on what I saw on that car, I got to believe there is no (expletive) left in them," resident Alex Hartley said.

How embarrassing. Where did they think the birds were going to go?

Where is U.O? I need someone to say
"O the U(manity)"

"O the U(manity)"

Just for you, LisaBFF. I don't think he'd mind. :)

Fumblingfather, you had the same thought as me!

Oh CRAP, an artical about the city I live in.

*snork* @ Coast Raven for Foo Sh!ts

O the Avianity?

dang, you guys took my James Taylor jokes.

And thank you, baby.

"Watch Local 6 News for more on this story"


Aw, for the love of- I have to go downtown every freakin' Tuesday night for choir rehearsal!! And I just washed my car. Dangit.

Who's Carl Hiaasen? Is he the guy with the hamburger chain?

In the event you were serious; Carl Hiaasen.
