Flamingos Beware

So. I found me a flamingo.

Actually, I killed me a flamingo... I think.

There I was minding my own business when this giant, pink-winged creature flies over my executive office (the backyard). I bark at it in salute, and it falls dead out of the sky - with NO LEGS! All I can guess is that the sound waves from my massive bark of greeting were simply too powerful, and knocked that flamingo off his flight pattern and right into my yard. He must have been pretty scared, because his body was completely petrified (hard as fine plastic) by the time he hit the ground.

I thought for a moment, "Is someone trying to mess with me here?", and I checked in with my cameragirl. But then I realized that if I didn't snatch him up quick-like, someone else would. So I decided to rescue him from his certain fate in the trash can. (I wonder if he knew any of the flamingos who used to pose in front of the house by the bushes...)

I wasn't about to leave him in the yard to rot, (and who wants to let a good flamingo go to waste?) so I brought him into the house and settled in for some good chewing.

Mmmmmm. (*Licking lips in ecstacy*) I hope nobirdy is waiting for him to arrive somewhere. (*Slathering the flamingo with Stanley slime*) Is there a hotline I could call to make a petrified flamingo notification?

ha, ha, ha...that's funny Stanley. Did the petrified flamigo taste good? So how did it get into your backyard...did you ask your cameragirl???

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Stan, that's a flamingo rescue, not a flamingo killing..who wouldn't rather be chomped by you than wind up in the trash???
You must be in a weird flightpath, wonder what else will drop from the sky????
love and smoochie kisses

I love how you have a good old peer into the heavens before picking the flamingo up! I found a real dead bird in my garden last night but dad scooped it before I could get me teethies in it, boo.

Hehehehe Stanley,
Good job at killing that pink flamingo. Maybe you can help us guard our koi from those Great Blue Herons that come around. They are even bigger than that flamingo. Did you ever figure out how it got into your yard??
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Something's not right with that bird. What do they always fly away from me? Are you the flamingo whisperer?

It was a midcentury mercy killing... good for the general culture of the humans. You did a GOOD THING.


PS - nah, I don't really care about steering wheels I really am more of a copilot kind of guy...
