Pigeons of the World, Unite

She could see it all, spread before her.

The Great Dropping would soon begin.

The humans falling. Her people rising. Statues getting splattered. Revolution.

“A new era,” Penelope cooed ominously. She couldn’t wait.

Trifecta’s weekend challenge was to use 33 words to describe one of three photos. This was the first thing that sprang to mind. I have an odd mind. Either that, or I’m harboring a secret fear of pigeons. C’est la vie.

    But then who would feed the pigeons?! (:

  2. I love this. Truly.

  3. I think we agree on the general “pigeons are evil” theme on our pieces. Am I right?

  4. This is awesome! I may never look up again.

  5. What an inspiring and funny story! “The Gread Dropping”, indeed:))

  6. Penelope, lovely name for a pigeon.

    • It’s harder to name a pigeon than one might think, but Penelope seemed to suit her. 🙂

  7. heh, i dig this! 🙂

  8. A new vision of the Apocalypse, perhaps? Cute one.

  9. They are evil, I know first hand, and dirty. The name was great.

  10. Hahaha! Aaaand…I think they they are starting with our front yard! The end is near 🙂

  11. The Great Dropping? I think I’m keeping indoors that day… *shudders*
    Awesome tale 🙂

  12. The Birds is Coming!
    Thanks for the laff!

    • I’ve never seen the Hitchcock movie about the bird invasion or whatever it was, but I’m thinking I should. We were warned…

  13. Love it! I picked this pic too!

    That’s kind of terrifying.

  15. Loved this one – Couldn’t think of what to do with the pigeon picture!

  16. Haha… dropping. Nice one (we had similar-ish thoughts on this one, though only slightly). Happy weekend!

  17. Pigeon Revolution FTW! I’ve never been much of a fan of pigeons.

  18. This is very funny!

  19. Oh mannnn! This poor pigeon! Lots of laughs as the poop really hits the fan with this photo!

  20. Darned pigeons! 😀

  21. The Great Dropping and ominous cooing. Yes!

  22. Penelope is a perfect name for a pigeon!

  23. LOL – I seriously laughed out loud when I read this! Thanks for spreading a little… (I started to say sunshine, but on second thought, I’ve got another word) MANURE! 😀

  24. [Insert Evil Laugh] Great story!

  25. Made me smile. The ‘Great Dropping’ – what a scary and messy thought.

  26. Ominous indeed!That too coming from someone sweetly named Penelope!lol!Enjoyed this thoroughly-ofc because it is only imaginary-God forbid it would ever become real!;-)

  27. You’ve got one of my three votes. I love this.
