Venice, the Queen of the Adriatic, is perhaps better known for Casanova, canals and the cursed palace of Ca'Dario than it is for its success in protecting buildings from corrosive pigeon droppings.

Pigeon shiat is corrosive? You learn something new every day.

station a sentinel with a pellet gun. nail one of them and the others will scatter. repeat until they stop coming back.

the same tactic will probably work for the birds as well.

I've never watched that movie all the way through, nor had I ever heard the word "tuppence" when I caught that scene on TV a few months ago. It was pretty weird. Is tuppence really a thing?

Look up the story of St. John Cantius in Chicago. They had a giant stained glass window that was starting to bow out so badly that they put up a beam to keep it in its frame.

Then they found that there were several tons worth of bird shiat in the rafters. They had it cleaned out and the window snapped back into place.

Yes, before the currency change to the euro.  It was a two-cent coin (two-pence).

Peg a couple of pigeons in front of the person feeding them and then quietly state that you can keep going as long as they do. And that them for baiting for you.

/not only it's pigeon poop highly corrosive, it carries a ton of diseases.
// damage and disease wise they really are rats with wings.

They still used the Pound the last time I was there. The denominations of change changed in 1971, so no more shillings, but pence still exist.

??? Mary Poppins is set in London. The UK hasn't joined the Euro, and we have pence not cents (at the time Mary Poppins is set pence were 1/240th of a pound not 1/100th anyway).

Two pence


Yeah, I know what it means, it just sounds weird. Why not just say "two pence?" Especially for the two scenes and a song where they never strayed from this awkward sounding word.

It bothered me. I don't know why.

I've seen it as ta'pence or ta pence in other media.  Tuppence is just another form of spelling a bastardization of 'two pence' for ease of reading, singing, or speaking.  I've even heard the song where two pence is spoken normally.

It's just a word like any other, and written != spoken for most words depending on dialect and accent.

It's an English thing.  Kind of like a farthing was a 1/4-cent coin in the old days.

And yeah, I suck - England does still have pounds and pence.  But IIRC, the tuppence or two-pence was ceased when they went to decimals.

Corrupted/vernacular spelling of earlier corrupted/vernacular spelling "twopence" for "two pence," i.e. 2 pence/pennies, as in the price is 2 pennies per bag of bird feed.  The American expression "two cents" for your thoughts/opinions is derived from it, and it can be used in much the same way.  In the same meaning, also related to, possibly derived from, the older saying "Penny for your thoughts."

Britain never adopted the Euro.  In 71 they did decimalize their currency.

If you're in the southern hemisphere it's spring.  If you're in the north, it doesn't matter.  Poisoning pigeons is a hobby that can be enjoyed year round.

Most bird shiat is:

"The corrosive effects of bird droppings can cause irreversible damage - defacing rooftops, walkways, walls, vehicles and equipment. Bird droppings quickly turn to salt and ammonia; after rain, electrochemical reactions speed up the rusting process. These acidic droppings eat away at paint, concrete and metal, and can eventually cause structural failure. "  (source)
