Ok – it looks like we got the whole of summer crammed into one day. One whole day of boiling hot sun. Pigeons everywhere were soaking it up.
Here’s one I met called Gloria:
Apparently she called herself Gloria after Gloria Estefan – some really shit pop star from years ago. Here’s a link to her website – be warned though – there’s a rubbish song she did that auto-plays when you get there. Fucking hate it when websites do that. Throw you a bad tune without you even asking for it. Especially as dealing with the volume control in haste demands a tricky toe to beak manoeuvre that often goes wrong and leads to an accidental closing of the browser. Pain in the arse when that happens, and makes you hate the song even more.
Anyway – Gloria loves a bit of sunshine – as you can see. I told her that too much UV is dangerous and can cause premature ageing of the feathers. She said she didn’t give a flying fuck and would rather be tanned. I told her I didn’t think pigeons tanned? She told me I didn’t now jack shit about a pigeon’s beauty regime and where did I think the white bits came from! Fair play.
Maybe that explains the disappearance of the lovely Mary? She was white all over which means she’d probably just got back from her holidays. So now she’s all grey again – no wonder I can’t find her! Damn shame. As Damian commented – she would have been a perfect partner on The Ark – see post below – not that we need it anymore seeing as the world’s gone hot again – for now.
