So, all those folks got all excited because some musical artist "flashed the bird" during the Super Duper Bowl's "Halftime Show". Big freakin' deal.
What's with all these references to birds in regular conversation? Examples.....
"The Bird" - A single finger, not even pointed at the "recipient", is supposed to mean "fuck you". Why is one finger different from another?
NOTE: To me, the Arizona Governor's pointing a finger at our President (up close) is much more disrespectful. Just my opinion.
Jailbird - Obviously, somebody in jail (prison). Why the bird reference?
Stool Pigeon - WTF?
Canary - This one makes sense.....somebody who "sings" to the authorities.
Am I missing any? Comment or this thread will (as birds do) chirp.
