Pumpkin Seed Pigeon

Right – Kristel sent me this – cheers Kristel. It was on Boing Boing and everything:

It's a statue made out of bread by some chick called Constanza Puente. Pretty clever. Got me thinking – esp after my whole pigeon obesity thing last week… Check out the seriously fat dude bottom left – clearly been tucking in. Totally a bad message – here's a big load of white bread – help yourself.

So me and Mart made this – the healthy alternative:

A pumpkin seed pigeon.

Ali helped on the pigeon shape and we did the sticking pumpkin seeds on bit. Took fucking ages. Worth it though. Mart's idea to put it on a carrot. Nice.

    That’s fucking BRILLIANT!
    (Why is he getting, er, “fresh” with that carrot?)

    That’s quite impressive, Brian. I’d like to see photos of it getting eaten!

    Ryan: Dunno on the carrot front – it was Mart’s idea… You’re right tho – it does look slightly dodge!

    Becci: Cheers. Love to take pics of pigeons tucking in – trouble is I got a long way to go before pigeons want the seed more than white bread. It’s a start though…
