Gallant bird sits on his nest for months while her eggs hatch.
Goofus bird quick flash-incubates her eggs by setting her nest on fire with burning Pall Malls and lighter fluid.

Shouldn't this article be linked up to the buttsecks thread?

Why was the cigarette smoking a bird in the house? Smoking is an outdoor sport as my Mother always says.

She also says that about playing the bagpipes. She is a tidy and sensible house wife.

You missed one of my favourite TV shows (the six episode cartoon series of Clerks). It is absolutely brilliant and died prematurely, at an age when American shows are just getting warmed up and Britcoms are killing off their cast to prevent demands for more shows.

In this episode Jay and Silent Bob obsess over teaching a monkey to smoke. A false contagious disease alert puts the Quick Mark block under a plastic dome and the whole town of Leonardo at risk of being bombed into oblivion by the US Airforce. Because of the nuclear threat, Dante is humiliatingly forced to come out of the closet to the applause of everybody including the man-eating Deros underground, despite not being gay.

This is one of the hippest and greatest cartoons for youth and adult audiences ever. I'm not surprised that you have never seen or heard of it.

Does not seem legit. What kind of bird picks up a smouldering cigarette butt?! There are millions of years of evolutionary pressure telling them not to do that.
