    Just the sort of thing a rat disguised as a pigeon would think of.

    Rats and stuff can stiff the waiter.

    Pigeons weight the rats. Rats chew thru Pittsburgh steel

    …how Egar Allen Poetic…

    …he was a dirty rotten rat…

    …and a stool pigeon to boot…

    …he wore cement shoes…

    …and swam with the fishes…

    …his last words were…

    …bubble bubble bubble…

    …but he got his revenge…

    …he sent his invisible girlfriend to haunt them…

    …they didn’t know why…

    …but they were spooked…

    …and kinda turned on…

    …Delores had that affect on gangsters…

    …especially gangsters from the bathmat factory…

    After you eat 10,000 Nuns and orphans you should to disguise yourself as something.

    (Who remembers “10,000 Nuns and orphans all eaten by rats”?)

    Much like sitting on a park bench and a few Rats, donning pigeon Feathers, approaches but all you have is bird seed, and popcorn, which attracts the squirrels, and a different variety of birds. ….. they come closer and closer to check out the food…..and before you know what’s happening, a sudden, and frenzied scramble ensues…they attacked the bag with the seed and popcorn, and I ran like hell….

    Turns out the hawk from the sky swooped down, grabbed a rat donning pigeons feathers and flew high into the sky….

    FYI ….I witnessed hawks attacking pigeons and a baby skunk in my yard and tear them apart….so sad and frightening to see….

    Tesla (pictured) started by disguising rats as pigeons, but that wasn’t discussed widely at all, after his other work.

    That’s probably easier than dropping “brachiosaurus puke crater” into everyday conversation.

    (Sorry, Rotifer.)

    Do rats compete with pigeons as to the sizes of their droppings!?

    Pigeons may be rats in disguise but squirrels are rats with bushy tails and a better reputation.

    I prefer the term rat bastard. It covers various configurations, and rolls nicely off the tongue.

    I worked in a building in SF for over 10 years where my window had a great view of a parking lot. One attendant fed pigeons. He’d figured out how to get them to perch all over his body so he looked like he was wearing clothing made from live pigeons.
