I Witnessed A Murder....Of Crows

I called the dogs to go outside for their hourly potty-break last night. Something was up with them. They usually jump at the chance to spend a little time outdoors, but, this time, they weren't having it. I had to drag both of the dogs outside, and as I placed them on the lawn, I looked up to see what had been troubling them. A large murder of crows circled overhead. There were easily hundreds of them and they were flying around like they were pissed off.

Crows are known for their intelligence and are often seen as harbingers of death. I personally see them as harbingers of a dive-bomb crapping attack. In fact, when I surveyed my neighborhood the next morning, I could hardly walk on the pavement without having to avoid clumps of crow droppings. My poor Mustang, along with all other cars left outside overnight in the neighborhood, was covered in crap. It should be no wonder that there was so much shit laying around as the typical crow eats 11 ounces of food on a daily basis and the waste has to go SOMEwhere.

This whole experience hasn't given me a newfound respect for nature, nor has it made me learn to appreciate the power of the animal kingdom. All it has done is motivate me to buy a car cover for my convertible.
