I was wondering what that was that swooped down on my head today and took my OU cap sounding off with a screach!

Now the world may never know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop.

Help Woodsy escape the bobs,
Never help those policeman knobs...

Last I heard it was still three. Weird thing is I actually saw that commercial on TV a couple of days ago.

Oh PHEW, at least this monster owl is 'UNLIKELY' to attack and eat children!
 
2003-04-14 11:31:37 AM  
Does it belong to Harry Potter?

I blame those Hogwarts brats!

Did it run into anything? Could be Errol!

Jebus, it's an owl, not Godzilla! He'll be happy eating mice and small birds.

"They have tsetse flies down there the size of eagles. The natives had a name for them: Jose Greco de Muertos -- Flamenco Dancers of Death"?

Was she wearing orange shorts?
 
2003-04-14 11:37:17 AM  
What species is it? An unspotted owl?
 
2003-04-14 11:37:24 AM  
brown and 20 inches tall, with a 6-foot wingspan

So they're looking for my penis?
 
2003-04-14 11:39:03 AM  
Sorry dude, if I had known it was your owl, I wouldn't have eaten it. By the way, you should have fed it more, it was a little scrawny.

Fantastic. I remember the footage of Goldie swooping on peoples poncy, coiffured poodles and terriers in Regents Park back in 1965. Most amusing. I look upon this as payback for birds. Owners let their dogs chase the pigeons and ducks all the time!

Of course, Goldie did kill and eat a duck but....hey!

Article and video of Goldie here.

I hope the police don't rule out fowl play.

Apparently some owls look as if they have Down Syndrome.

2003-04-14 11:57:20 AM  
I guess we'll all have to go ask Mr. Turtle.
 
2003-04-14 11:57:37 AM  
Maybe he just wants to meet Jenny from the block.
And build a nest in that ass of hers.
 
2003-04-14 11:58:02 AM  
It's "Owl stretching time"
 
2003-04-14 11:58:10 AM

Everybody sing along!

"Help Woodsy spread the word,
never be a dirty bird.
In the city or in the woods,
help keep America looking good!"

Give a hoot! Don't pollute!

2003-04-14 12:08:50 PM  
The European eagle owl is the world's largest species of owl, and has been known to hunt foxes and small deer.

Holy fark. Deer?!

They need to catch this owl before it does something tragic like swoop down and snag Robbie Williams and eat him for lunch, the little bastard. I mean Robbie Williams, not the owl.

Talk about big hooters... Brooks is trying to get this owl to go to his next "gig."
 
2003-04-14 12:12:48 PM  
Is it just me or are there too many SbB girls now. I preferred the old days of everyone talking about how big Red's big reds were about to make her fall off the frames on to your mouse.

If 4 months ago is considered old days.

um....

Overhead he heard the cry of what might have been a melodious owl, but it wasn't a melodious owl. It was a flying saucer from Tralfamadore, navagating in both space and time, therefore seeming to Billy Pilgrim to have come from nowhere all at once. Somewhere a big dog barked.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Hooters!

Who cares! Hooters ahoy!
 
2003-04-14 01:38:51 PM  
Probably gone to deliver one hell of a howler to those brats at Hogwarts. Or maybe to Brit PM Tony Blair. There you go... photoshop the owl with the 6 foot wingspan delivering the mail to your favorite celeb.
