Pigeons Beware

Becca sent me this. Cheers Becca! It appears a rather frightening new trend is emerging in the parks of London. Pigeon licking. Jesus. Not only that, but those who partake are sporting t-shirts to prove it, and I believe there’s even a Facebook group:

Not that I would ever diss me own kind but, I have to say, even I wouldn’t ‘lick’ a pigeon per se. Not as such. Perhaps a gentle graze of the toe or lower leg prior to jumping on largely as a token gesture, but that’s about it.

Any of you out there spot any of these so-called ‘Pigeon lickers’, let me know. Freaks.

    Shocking and worrying. Watch your back.

    They’re obviously popular with the ladies though. Maybe it’s just code for something human.

    Speak for yourself, Bri. I could name a few pigeon friends who rather enjoy a good wet lick-down once in a while.

    Pigeon Rachel: Very possibly. Becca – if that’s you in the pic, maybe you can help out here…?
    Your pal Bri

    Charles Pigeon: You talkin’ male to female here or the wholly acceptable (and quite pleasant) female to female gentle preen?

    Well – don’t I feel all famous now!! Yes, that IS me – and I have to say that on a night out in Milton F*cking Keynes (not to worry folks, I reside in London) that was the HIGHLIGHT of my evening! Thought I’d send out a friendly warning to all my pigeon friends! P.S. have you SEEN the pigeon population in Elephant & Castle? Every morning on my way to the tube, I just WAIT to get shat on….xxx

    Becca: I admire your bravery for getting as close as you did! As for the pigeons in Elephant & Castle, I did hear it had all gone a bit rough down there… Must go check it out sometime, although clearly not an el solo trip!
    Your pal
