Ummm…Happy New Year? Arkansas was cursed with flooding last year at this time–and now DEAD red-wing blackbirds have covered yards and roads in Beebe, Arkansas. Take a second to listen to the Mayor of Beebe tell reporters how it’s “like living in an Albert [sic] Hitchcock movie“, y’all. (Yes, I’m making fun of the Mayor. Durrr.)
I remember thinking that Stephen King (damn, I wish I uttered said Albert Hitchcock line back then!) bought a house down the road from us when our neighbors’ cat was found dead in their yard, and our whippet, Oliver (RIP, Ollie) ran and leaped into the air–not once, but twice in one week–catching and MURDERING two blue jays. That’ll teach ’em.
Queue up the clip from The Birds, please.
What the gotdamnhell did these people DO to deserve this??
