Winston Pigeon Refuses Interview

Tried to get an interview with Winston, but failed miserably. Said he was too fucked to speak to anyone. Turns out when he landed, one of the memory stick corners dug right into him. In all those celebration shots, he was winded. Nightmare.

I decided to leave him alone and let him recover a bit. Watch this space though, I’ll get in there somehow.

In the meantime, BobOHara from Twitter sent me a link to this – an ode to the pigeon himself.

It’s called Winston Pigeon, came from a site called Digital Cuttlefish, and this is the first verse:

Carrier pigeons are diligent workers,
And some have been honored as heroes
But, sadly, technology changed their careers,
With the messages, now, ones and zeroes.

Nice one.

Winston, if you’re out there, get better soon, pal.

    Hi Brian,

    It is wonderful to hear about the work you are doing for pigeons in London. And thank you so much for your concern over Winston.

    However, it is not true that he was hurt by the memory stick, he’s just be inundated with media and press trying to catch a glimpse of him this weekend, when he’d rather be out with his homeys (homings?), flying the airwaves, looking all slick and ruffling the feathers of some pretty doves.

    Please email me, and I will be sure to set up an interview for you with Winston.

    Many thanks and kind regards,
    The Unlimited

    Great to hear from you, pal. Good news too about Winston. Totally understand his fear of the media frenzy. I’d love to get an interview with him tho. Nice one! Turning into a bit of a hero of mine, as it goes.

    Want to drop me an email with your contact details and I’ll put together some questions (brianpigeon AT gmail DOT com)?

    Any chance of a couple of pics too?

    Cheers, and do say hi to the dude from me.

    Your pal, Bri
