fucked-up animals

In the process of waiting for laundry to dry, and feeling too lazy to do anything useful, I have been reading the online archives of Savage Love, wherein I have stumbled upon a collection of letters sent in by people who have wierd stories involvong birds and sex.

Here they all are.

But just in case you’re in a rush or something, you have to at least read the following letter, which has made me laugh so hard that I’m in tears. (Especially loving feet as much as I do. Well, only my feet, but still.)

“When I was 12, I had a parakeet named Little Buddy. I learned that parakeets are attracted to mirrors and things that look like other birds. In my adult life, I now realize that they must be incredibly stupid animals if they do not recognize mirrored glass for what it is and not another parakeet, but that is neither here nor there. Whenever Little Buddy saw something that he thought was another bird, he would peck at it, chirp, and spit up seeds on it. One day, my dad was barefoot while I had the bird out on the floor. Little Buddy walked over to my dad’s feet and started pecking at his big toenail. My dad has the gross, callused feet of a workingman, which in no way look anything like a small bird. Little Buddy started spitting up seeds and when he started humping away at my dad’s big toe, I grabbed him and put him back in his cage. Anytime my dad’s feet came into view of his cage, he would start chirping or he would bite if I put him away while my dad was barefoot. The moral here is that parakeets are sick, fucked-up animals and you should keep them away from the ones you love.”

P.S. The new Bjork album is amazing.

I totally agree, by the way.
I don't trust parakeets.

I'm also very curious about the new Bjork album. Isn't it with only vocals or something? Bjork is so interesting.
I heard you got the Garden State soundtrack- Gene just burned me a copy. I love it and the movie both so much!

AND I can't wait to see you!!!

and I'll stop talking now.

I can't wait to see you too! Are you staying with us?

Yeah, I love the GS soundtrack. And the Bjork album is great but wierd. I heard she recorded the tracks with music, and then took everything out that wasn't someone's voice. And Rahzel from the Roots is on it, too.

I'm interested to hear it, because I can't imagine it in my head. From what I've read it seems bizarre, and very Bjork-like.

I got your message about the weekend of the 10th being best, also Kelly and Shannon are in their new place (on Robinson), so I can always stay there if it's easier for you guys.

Looking forward to seeing you!

You are welcome to stay here, if you'd like!
Wherever you'd be more comfortable...
Hopefully we can all do something super fun on Sunday (if you'll be here) since that's the day we all usually have off.

I wonder if that guy knows how many thousands of species of bugs there are in the Amazon.

are bugs an animal? i wonder if he is killing the endangered ones too? i wonder if he's using this nipple/battery thing to do it?

Posted by: didofoot at décembre 14, 2004 05:36 PM

It would be hot if the endangered animal was wearing a diaper while doing the nipple/battery thing.
