Pidgeoy pudgey little arms

I was walking back to the car on Sunday after doing the groceries, and saw a white pigeon with dirty brown spots on it's bottom half running across the road.

"Huh" I thought to myself, "where did his arms go?".

"Wait, what?" was my next thought, "pigeons don't have arms, stupid!"

"Oh yeah... but they look so funny without them." I had the mental image of his little arms pumping back and forth in contrast to his little legs.

"Um no they don't. They're birds."

And then I snapped out of it.

I have NO idea what caused that little mental episode but I did have an upset stomach about an hour later - that's gotta be related, right?

Wow, you ARE weird :)

Birds have wings so they can't arms, would they go above or below their wings? Having arms would be a total design flaw for birds.

Plus, birds are gross, that's why you got sick, they passed on some grossness to you :P

Probably the funniest (and randomest) blog post ever.

Oh this is awesome!
Imagine their little tiny slap fights over discarded chips!
You're an amazing artist too... The way you've portrayed motion in the first piece... It's stunning!

Amanda said...

Gosh, that really is the funniest thing I've ever read! At least, in a very, very long time. I sometimes think up weird, random things, but I don't think it's ever been that weird, or that random.

LaLa said...

I am with you, pigeons need arms.

And fingers.

Lara said...

wow, crazy much? ;)

Cléa said...

What?? no yellow faces on the birdies? For shame...:P

Adam said...

Clea is totally right.

How are the pidgeons going to feel when they see themselves on the internet with arms?!? How embarrassment/ace for them!

Lulu said...

Funny!!! I like the last pic, perfect for valentines day....

So, did the hun propose? *giggle*

Enny said...

d'jen - oh SNAP! I can see the design flaw, but they don't wiggle their arms/wings when they run across the road...

rosanna - why thankyou!

rosanna - why thankyou!

non-blondie - you can see he's just realised the peak of his evil plan!

jac - glad you liked it :o)

j'cricket - heh heh, their arms are only just long enough to reach - they'd totally be rubbing guts!

amanda - I choose to take that as a compliment :o)

mars - *slap back slap*

crystal - they're under his wing!

lala - how many do you think they would have?

lara - no, not at all!

clea - oh noes! You're right!!!

adam - back me up, bro! They better give me a cut of the royalties when their boy band tours.

lulu - isn't it just?! No, no, no ;o)

Wow, I think this a lot actually. I thought I was the only one.

I also look at lizards and think they need ears. Little pointy ones.

I love your artist impressions too :-)
