It’s bad enough when you have careless kids smoking on rooftops and tossing lit cigarette butts hither and yon, but firefighters now apparently have to worry about careless birds doing basically the same thing.
People teach their birds to say the darnedest things. Thanks to a man in Mexico, we now know that teaching your bird phrases like He’s drunk, He’s high or He’s packin’ might get you the unwanted attention of law enforcement, the media and even the occasional snarky blogger.
Authorities in Turkey have officially cleared a bird that they had detained amidst allegations that the little guy was spying for Israel. Strangely, this is not the first time they have examined a bird that they suspected of spying for the Israelis. As far as is known, no bats or large flying insects have yet been detained as spies.
Authorities in Turkey are examining the remains of a bird, specifically a European Bee-Eater, or Merops Apiaster, that was found dead by a farmer in Gaziantep, Turkey, and was reported. The tiny remains were turned over to authorities after the farmer indicted the band on the bird’s leg that was etched with a serial number and the word “Israel.”
