    “If I sat on one end of the balcony, the crows would gather on the railing at the other end and talk about me; and edge closer, little by little, till I could almost reach them; and they would sit there, in the most unabashed way, and talk about my clothes, and my hair, and my complexion, and probable character …”

    Twain, Mark. (1897). Following the Equator. American Publishing Company.

    Can’t waste time on the stairwell. Because, you know, crows are so busy.

    …why do they have to be black birds?…

    …why can’t they just be birds?…

    …why do pigeons remind me of Joe Pesci?…

    …and geese are nasty critters…

    …I don’t give a [honk] about them…

    …what is the sound of one frog applauding?…

    …and where are their masks?…

    …now, that’s something to crow about…

    …don’t caw us…

    …we’ll caw you…

    There is a field near where I work where one can watch the interactions of flocks of crows and seagulls. It’s quite interesting, sometimes.

    The deuce, you day! Corvids are darn smart, on a level with cuttlefish and human infants. But these appear to be a little slow at the riposte, whether about pigeons or about Canada geese.

    The geese use the former athletic fields of the closed prep school across the street as a stopover on their migratory ways. But that may prove useful if it demands an official Environmental Impact Statement before a developer can convert the former prep grounds into high density housing….

    …and what about those doves? Waddle waddle, munch munch all day! They’re so plump they can barely lift off. Another thing! Those noisy Blue Jays! Screaming and bullying ! Is there no justice in the lofty world of birds? But their world stops when the Pileated woodpecker lands on the feeder…all bets are off!

    …I have crows feet…

    …but my wife, has naughty sex lines when she smiles…

    …they are the cat’s pajamas…

    ..yet, when I look them up on line…

    …for some- who knows for what reason- most people want to get rid of their smile lines…

    …Ruth Wilson has the naughtiest smile lines going…

    … and collar bones…

    …don’t get me started on how sexy they are…

    …two words: Lauren Ba-caw!…

    The Black Crows candy trademark was registered in 1911.

    They recently changed the name of the candy to Crows.

    …Roland flipped the old witch the bird…

    …because bird was the word…

    …it wasn’t the first time she had to eat crow…

    …or E.T. flying bicycles…

    …Eddie was high as an elephant’s eye…

    …he saw a house fly…

    …and a dragon fly…

    …and a humming bird sing the words to Rebel Rouser…

    …but he decided to give up the Mary Jane…

    …it left spiderman veins on his neck…and left more questions than answers…

    …like just what was the Qanon?…

    …’cuz it seemed like the good stuff…

    …but he did not shoot with his eye…

    …or remember his father…

    …and the black bird was sitting on the edge of knife…

    …but got a closer shave with the new lubricated Edge razor…
