So, everyone knows the Alfred Hitchcock movie, “The Birds”. What I never understood was why the birds were attacking in the first place. Were they mad about Tippi Hedrin's "joke"? I still don’t get it.

But that’s a movie. In real life, I’ve been noticing a lot of bird-related delinquency, starting with larceny:

Ha-ha, cute! But then an airplane goes down over the Hudson River. Why? Because of...a bird. A Canada goose, to be exact:

Okay, the pilot managed to handle everything correctly, and no one was injured. Canada geese are a pain in the ass—ask anyone who lives in Northern New Jersey. Usually the threat is in the form of goose poop that is EVERYWHERE. Now they’re getting a bit more aggressive. Hmm.

Then I saw this article about a baseball game:

Okay, so in this one the bird gets hit. And if you’re an Indians fan, you would probably regard this as divine intervention. Still, those birds are interfering where they’re not wanted. But they haven’t attacked anyone, right?

I don’t know about you, but I think I need some more cats. Big ones.
