Mafia Pigeons and Don Pigeano – Scary Shit

Right – having decided LA was too far to go, banged up in some box for 10 hours, started lookin' into other places for a bit of a mini break. Heard pigeons got it easy in Italy, so thought I'd investigate…

Got it easy? Have they fuck. Seems the pigeon mafia have totally fucking taken over and there's some serious shit going down – esp in Sicily.

This pic was sent to me by Bob. Bob is Mart's 3rd cousin who's been there, twice.

Apparently this poor dude flew down from Germany for a bit of sun, got pulled up by Don Pigeano – the scary fuck on the left – and was sent home – no food – nada – just told to fuck off – while all the other pigeons pretended nothing was going on. Wankers. Great pic but disturbing stuff and, frankly, not very appealing for a mini break. What's going on with the pigeon in pink too? Jesus Christ.

Back to the drawing board. Too late for an Easter break anyway, and, tbh, got more important things to do.

    That’s awful!

    Isn’t there a pigeon UN somewhere?? Someone needs to regulate these things!

    Actually, wait… no. That would end up making everything worse.

    Whoa, cool but completely spooky picture.

    The pigeon in pink is called a Red, Brian. They’re rare here but I do see them occasionally.

    Uhhhh…Seems like Bob has been in dreadful troubles, poor guy. Then again, he got lucky to be sent away alive – these Don something usually don’t let tourists get nosy about their business (seed traffic?!)

    Happy Easter! The Hummingbird, minions and I spent the day in Spearfish, SD, a fantastic little town 45 minutes or so west of us. We took the scenic route, as well: cutting through the casino town of Deadwood, we took

    Well I see the big guy as a Casanova, not a killer! He is just trying to seduce the little new hen in the flock, in my humble opinion 😉

    Kristina: Probably would. Does suck though. Bob’s going back there for the next bank hols so gonna get him to take some more pics. With this whole Trafalgar Square thing I think I may have to stay put for the min.

    Becci: Red – if it’s called Red, why is it pink? Reckon it may have faded in the sun… Cheers for the tip tho.

    RoooRoooo: No – Bob’s cool. He either took this pic of the German dude or someone over there gave it to him. Not sure. He’s done loads of travel shit so knows to stay low. Not sure what’s going on over there but – like I said to Kristina – he’s on his way back to Sicily soon and is gonna do a bit of pecking around for me. Just a bit tho, case it gets heavy. Am chatting to Bob about him being my roaming pigeon reporter – think he might be up for it…

    The mafia pigeon connection is long and deep “and dose boids is trouble I tells ye” once they get their beaks where they don’t belong its no turning back.

    Suz: Worrying!

    Fritz: Totally. Makes sense now that St Mark’s Square in Venice is full of hungry pigeons. Apparently there’s one big seed racket going on down there run by Mafia pigeons – got the whole thing sown up. St Mark’s Square is the only place in the whole of Italy with free seed. Nightmare. Looks like us pigeons have got serious issues the world over.
