FTFA:
The bird had had to place its wings on the ground to steady itself, and had leant against the walls of its enclosure to keep upright, they said. After two days the bird fully recovered and was released back into the wild.

Heckuva hangover there, hey Tweetie?

I thought that alcohol was just for those with nothing else to do.

I thought that drinkin' just to get drunk was a waste of precious booze.

Every spring. Every. Damn. Spring.

Mountain ash berries that have been frozen all winter thaw out, releasing the sugars inside. Fermentation starts up, and the dog-awful Magpies show up. And if you don't think they know exactly what they are doing, you are outa your mind. They are there to get their booze on, and in a big way.

For 2 weeks every May my backyard is full of drunk, belligerent Magpies screaming at each other and anyone who approaches. Ain't no meaner drunk then a Magpie drunk.

I met a drunk bird once. It was during a nor'ester and I opened my front door to find a juvenile red-wing blackbird sheltering on my front porch. I brought him in so he could warm up and he was behaving very strangely and stumbling about. I took him to a nearby vet, who worked with the state's songbird preservation program and she told me he was drunk on fermented berries. She kept him for a few days and fed him Gatorade and then returned him to the wild.

How many fruits does an elephant need to eat to get drunk? I mean, they have to have a high tolerance considering their weight and size.

And note to self: Stay out of the way of drunken elephants.

/Both in the wilds, and at Walmart on their mobility scooters.

Thanks for that. I've been having a crappy couple of days. This gave me a good laugh

I used to feed the crows fermenting cherries I got from a friend that worked in a produce department.

Kept the outdoor cats fed.

This is what I imagine they are saying.

Magpie 1: Duude, did you see that hen look at my beak? She wants me.

Magpie 2: No way; she was too busy looking at my feathers; besides, I think she might be into ravens.

Magpie 1: Ravens? Why do you say that?

Magpie 2: Did you see the the way she was shaking her rump and tail? She's got the Edgar Allen Poe fever, if you know what I mean.

Magpie 1: Oh shiat; a human! Let's make fun of him!

Magpie 2: Good idea; Hey, human, your face looks like a grackle.

/ then it's off to the bush for more berries

Hey, drugs work, and we/you know it, so wtf?

End obfuscation and profit.

Legalize and democratize now.

Decorporatize.

Humanize.

Make this world work for people, not businesses' profit.

Please vote for President Obama for four more years to try and make government of, by, and for the people again...

Thank you.

If God had intended birds to fly, he wouldn't have given them alcohol.

Amos Quito: If God had intended birds to fly, he wouldn't have given them alcohol.


Wrong.

Birds knew of fermented fruits before flight was necessary.

Every spring. Every. Damn. Spring.

You speak the truth. I've seen magpies rip roofing metal off a garden shed. Wasn't even shiny, and no way did they want it for nesting material - it was way too big. Total mobsters. Bluejays can be a bit gangsta too.
