You didn't expect the bird on the Left to feed itself, did you?

Z said...

Who are you, Beamish, Tom Smothers? :-)

beamish said...

I'm Joe Friday.

Just the facts, ma'am. ;)

Leticia said...

LOL!! Poor wittle baby! I wonder if she will hop on the one she is feeding on her next round of feeding?

Joe said...

What's wrong with that? That's how my mother fed my sisters all the time. You will notice that I have little or no hair...right?

Leticia, I'm afraid not, the squeaky wheel get's the oil!


Z and Beamish, you two ought to take this act on the road. We could use another Burns and Allen.

Beamish, please don't tell me you never heard of them, I couldn't take it. heh, heh.

Funny photo. What a blast from the past with the Smother Brothers reference. I haven't thought about them in more years that I care to admit.

Z said...

"Mother always loved YOU more!" right, you Smothers Bros rememberers? (of course, I only remember cuz someone told me)

As for Burns and Allen? WHAT?? (heh heh)

Heck, I was very small but I still remember R(AAAAH)CHESTER!!!

Z said...

Karen Howes said...

I did Z. It's called tough love, bird style!

Tom said...

Tough love at best, but may even be tough hate - as in relative non-selection. For as much as the Greenies and Lib ilk bombard us with messages about how cruel and insensitive humanity is - one need only examine nature a wee bit more than pretty NGS pics, to see how callous it acts in the competition to survive and also to select each species' fittest based on instinctual impulses (or what we deem to be judgements, in a human state). It is a funny photo if seen in a anthropocentric fashion - but is likely the mother's choosing the strongest and progenically fittest over the smaller, more feeble bird (sorry to ruin an otherwise cute image - but my point has to do with the great lie of Us vs. Nature). Cheers

Too funny.

Reminds me when I was a kid, a bird was injured and fixed him up and fed him. When we released him he flew over in circles over us then went his way.

Leslie said...

LOL! That is so funny, Z.

Z said...

Well, Tom, you took that to a WHOLE different level :-)

Leslie, THANKS, I thought so, too!

FrogBurger, very sweet story.

Pris..Tough Love, alright!

I think George Burns was hardcore. I hope they buried him with a cigar.

Anonymous said...

Beamish, thanks, I feel much better.

I believe Burns was 100 years old or thereabouts when he died. Just think of how long he would've lived if he hadn't smoked cigars!!!!

MK said...

That is a good one.

Brooke said...

Now that is funny!

Nonsense. Native Americans smoked tobacco for thousands of years to no ill effect.

Imagine how long George Burns would have lived had he not lived during the height of atmospheric nuclear weapons testing.

Brooke said...

Besides, Burns smoked in moderation... He never had more than one cigar lit at a time.

Z said...

There's a George Burns Drive in Beverly Hills near Cedars Sinai Hospital...maybe because he gave a lot of $$ to the hostpial.

beamish said...

Gotta light, Brooke?

Brooke said...

Sure. Torch or standard?

"Gotta light, Brooke?"

Beamish, I do. Smoke 'em while you've got 'em!
