Doin’ the Pigeon June 22, 2007 / Neil Kramer / 28 Comments Thanks for reading the baby pigeon saga. It really happened! Although we should probably do something about the problem of his parents, who are creating havoc with our cable — Movies and Television Previous post The Pigeon on the Patio – Part 3 Next post Amazing Things You Can Find at a Los Angeles Goodwill Store 28 Comments sputnik June 22, 2007 at 8:24 am Awesome! I never knew Bert had dancin’ legs and wore saddle shoes. And proof that there are actually other pigeon fans (?) out there. Reply V-Grrrl June 22, 2007 at 9:36 am So Neil, can you do the Pigeon with a broom for a partner? Just asking. Reply psychomom June 22, 2007 at 9:37 am OH MY GOD! I must have missed that episode of Sesame Street, dang. I liked seeing his legs too and I want to make a pair of those socks! PBS and COTM rock! Reply deannie June 22, 2007 at 9:39 am OMG! I love Ernie. MORE ERNIE VIDEOS PLEASE Reply deannie June 22, 2007 at 9:40 am OMG! I love Bert. MORE BERT VIDEOS PLEASE Reply Neil June 22, 2007 at 9:46 am At least it wasn’t ABBA. Reply paintergirl June 22, 2007 at 2:45 pm hey it’s kind of catchey isn’t it. Reply Pearl June 22, 2007 at 3:26 pm You always manage to tie everything it neatly, don’t you? I couldn’t help but have flashbacks to one of my all-time fave shows, “The Carol Burnett Show.” She used to play a character of a bag lady and coax the pigeons in the park with “Here, pidgey, here pidgey…” I can just picture Neil Kramer doing the same, then squawking when the pigeon approaches! Have a great weekend, Neil & Sophia. Sophia, hope you’re doing well, and enjoy the planting you’ve been doing. Reply Mr. Fabulous June 22, 2007 at 4:01 pm It is obvious that the pigeons simply want you to watch less TV and read more. BTW, I am seriously thinking about murdering you so I can take over and have a PR6 blog. I thought it only sporting to warn you. Reply AscenderRisesAbove June 22, 2007 at 4:15 pm “See the one with the feathers…” Hilarious! Reply Neil June 22, 2007 at 4:19 pm A PR6 blog? Reply Kate June 22, 2007 at 4:30 pm I can’t believe you failed to have your baby pigeon spayed or neutered before sending it back out into the wild. That was really bad parenting, Neil. Now she’s just gonna get knocked up and try to raise her babies on your patio. Reply L.A. Daddy June 22, 2007 at 4:39 pm PR6 means “Page Rank” in Google-speak. It means you’re popular. Like Olivia Newton John popular. People like you! They really like you! Let’s see what my blog’s page rank is… BRB Ack! 4 out of 10. Someday, Neil. Someday. Reply Neil June 22, 2007 at 5:34 pm Oh. Alright! Google rank. Bring on the money! And Olivia Newton John is hot — or at least she used to be. Haven’t seen her lately. But I bet she’s still hot. Reply Two Roads June 22, 2007 at 6:23 pm Neil, call animal control to come breakup that pigeon nest. yuck! Sorry folks, I have a big aversion to pigeons. Reply Dagny June 22, 2007 at 6:28 pm I will have to make my guests learn that dance tomorrow. hehe Reply Shelli June 22, 2007 at 6:33 pm It was awesome! Reply Jay June 22, 2007 at 9:55 pm Be still my heart. Yeah, so not jealous, actually. Frankly, I’m surprised (though glad) you survived. Reply helen June 23, 2007 at 12:47 am “what the pigeon wants, it taketh..” It’s taking over your turf. It’s moving in with you. Reply Jane June 23, 2007 at 6:57 am I mentioned the Muppets the other day in class and my students looked at me like I spoke a foreign language. I think it’s so sad that the kids of today aren’t really exposed to Sesame Place:( Travesty, I tell ya. Reply plain jane June 23, 2007 at 8:29 am Wow. You worked that pigeon angle for a whole week! It was grand. Reply Margaret June 23, 2007 at 8:38 am If you relocated my baby, I’d mess with your cable too! Reply Marilyn June 23, 2007 at 12:56 pm Pigeons and doves are not the same thing, are they? My mother-in-law says I have doves, but they look like pigeons. I’ve been feeding them and if I’m feeding doves that sounds good but if I’m feeding pigeons I feel pretty stupid. Reply Patois June 24, 2007 at 6:19 pm If the pigeons somehow get electrocuted in the cables — I’m not saying you’re wishing for it, but I’m saying if it happens — you’ll get some nice roast squab, right? A good by-product, yes? Reply mrsatroxi June 25, 2007 at 11:34 am Bert!! Reply Pearl June 25, 2007 at 9:16 pm G;a the pidgeon was ok. I love Burt. Reply Pearl June 25, 2007 at 9:17 pm never type tired. Glad, I’m glad and Bert, I love him, I just don’t know his name. Gah! Reply amanda June 26, 2007 at 7:01 am so, i saw a news program about how great pigeons actually are and how some people have coops of them like chickens, and they care for them, and so on. i can’t buy into that for this singular reason: one time i saw one pecking at human vomit on the sidewalk. i will never think of them as anything other than indiscriminant vermin. i feel bad for feeling that way about them, but that was just revolting.
