Those are puns most fowl, submitter...
2013-09-23 09:15:33 AM  
I suspect Subby of winging it.

They really tern me off.
2013-09-23 09:16:06 AM  
I dont get the grouse part....but the rest was pretty good/stretched.
2013-09-23 09:17:40 AM  
Subby is really stretching it with words that sort of sound like other words.  Or maybe he's just hard of heron?
2013-09-23 09:18:13 AM  
Way too many puns in the headline. You need to leave a few so others can have a tern.

Pangit: I dont get the grouse part....but the rest was pretty good/stretched to the point that it wasn't funny at all.

Who needs a penguin you have a keyboard, eh subby?
2013-09-23 09:22:27 AM  
I sense that subby was trying to communicate something.  Not sure what.

You have a strange view of biology...
2013-09-23 09:24:46 AM  
If only there was some way birds could escape fire. Perhaps by going over it somehow.
2013-09-23 09:25:52 AM  
In other news... "wilful fire-raising"???  Don't normal people call that "arson"?

/they even mis-spelled "willful."
2013-09-23 09:27:17 AM  
If your birds are in burning aviary, omlet go, because man, they're roasted
2013-09-23 09:30:36 AM  
I'd flip you the bird but...

Ah, fark it.
2013-09-23 09:31:49 AM  
Well, that was a tortured headline.
2013-09-23 09:33:33 AM  
On a side note, the fire department had a lovely lunch.
2013-09-23 09:34:44 AM  
I want a wheelie bin.
2013-09-23 09:38:08 AM  
Subby you have a lot of gull to submit this falcon piece of crap!  You must have done it on a lark, but you pigeon-holed yourself, and Owl not be reading your headlines again.
2013-09-23 09:38:55 AM  
...And I'm sorry if that was hard to swallow.
2013-09-23 09:41:33 AM  
Did I mention that your headline was nothing to crow about?
2013-09-23 09:42:21 AM  
Toucan play this game, Subby!
2013-09-23 09:46:59 AM

They have fires which have a lot of will.

will swoop in and nab the hooligans.
2013-09-23 10:19:18 AM  
I don't give a hoot about subby's tweetment of this headline.
2013-09-23 10:56:35 AM  
Oh you hadn't heard?
2013-09-23 11:08:59 AM  
::slow clap::, subby
2013-09-23 11:32:42 AM  
No regerts!
2013-09-23 11:37:50 AM  
There still may be two in the bush.
2013-09-23 12:40:01 PM  
What kind of a tit writes a headline like that?
2013-09-23 01:30:00 PM  
Arsonists who set fire to inhabited (by humans or animals) buildings are the scum of the earth.
2013-09-23 02:56:51 PM  
That could not have been too pheasant.
2013-09-23 03:45:48 PM  
Subby here, and marking a minor milestone (#100). I was hoping to strike a tone not so much as humorous, but one which might induce a mild form of revulsion, similar to listening to PDQ Bach, or seeing the Mona Lisa on a velvet painting. Personally, I hate puns, and often quote John Dennis, "He who would tell a pun would pick a pocket." So I am considering this a moderately successful troll.
