Ah, yes. Who can forget their classic single “GTD: Closet Safe”?

It’s raining birds! Hallelujah, it’s raining birds!

Wrong one?

I think it’s actually that quote from Something About Mary:

47 grackles twirlin’ on a branch
eatin’ lots of warfarin on my uncle’s ranch.

Yeah, my neighbor left a plate of warfarin out to kill rats, but only put out a little tray of water…not enough for the rats to drown themselves in.

Now there are bloated, toxic little corpses spread around the block.
And nobody has seen a cat in weeks.

It’s like you’re dreamin’ about gorgonzola cheese when it’s clearly brie time, baby.

It’s raining deceased birds in Boston.


#13

No mystery to me! I’m betting an old boss of mine was walking through the neighborhood. Dead birds rain from the sky all the time around her!


#14

You know, I was outside a good bit of the morning, and haven’t been pelted by a single dead bird.
I’m feeling a little shorted, somehow.


#15

They’re not dead - they’re just pining for the fjords!

singing just like birds, suddenly appear… every time, you are near… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6inwzOooXRU

Lovely plumage!

♫ It’s raining diseased birds in Boston, Hallelujah! ♫

Hmm, doesn’t work as well.

Bless you for trying.

Too bad. I like grackles. Bless their poor little, dysfuctional hearts.
