Bird Flu Strikes in Florida!

Oh the horror! Oh the humanity!

You contact the CDC yet?

I always knew that those yard flamingos would come to a terrible end. Alas, what is this world coming to?

Did the light pink ones suffer more than the dark pink ones?

Have they got legs or is that why they fell over?

I discovered a rather devious device on my computer. If I click on the flamingo photo a larger photo appears and I can then count the legs and divide by two to determine the number of birds so afflicted.

haha jack. i just left-clicked the photo and it immediately enlarges. makes the scene even more gruesome.

i am sure florida in general is just reeling from the devastation. i'll have to ask bogs what the scoop is on his local news.

He will probably tell you that his landlord is trying to protect him from the flamingo bird flu by screening the balconies. Poor Finchy.

actually, I have to confess something - I am a little worried about bird flu... in a moment of weakness I - oh God - kissed Filly on the beak... please don't tell Finchy! (he can't read)

now I have the sniffles, and I'm afraid it's an ATD...
