doodle by andre: horny birds

AS I HAVE MENTIONED: Forget about Angry Birds, my yard is full of Horny Birds this too-early spring. And when I told that to the Mad Doodler of South-Dakota-via-Britain, dear transplanted Andre Jordan, apparently I hit a chord. I know there are offcolor jokes in this vein involving words like woody and suffixes like -pecker, but I’m no dirty-minded trash mouth, you know. It’s the birds who have spring fever; not my fault, really. (Not buying the bird excuse? Then blame Andre that this woodpecker’s covering Salt-N-Pepa’s hit; he has adapted other hits into slightly “off” doodles in his “Songs for Ex-Lovers.” But me? I didn’t do it.)

    It’s so much fun going from growing the “perfect carrot” with the help of a Ph.D to paying attention to “horny birds” with a transplant from Britain. It’s what makes your blog the best.

    When I was in high school, my Beta Club group went to Birmingham AL for the state convention. We stopped at the Birmingham Zoo on our way back out of town. It was springtime and as soon as we got out of our cars, we could hear the bellowing from everywhere. There is nothing like visiting the zoo with your high school group – during mating season. That was a long, long time ago (over 40 years) but I have not forgotten it.
