Happy birthday, Bob

When the bluebird of bitterness was hatched back in 2011, no one dreamed that we’d still be here eight years later, primarily because no one had any idea that we existed. Well, the joke’s on them, because we’re still here!

This year’s celebration was delayed a few days by circumstances beyond our control. First there was a huge blizzard that shut everything down…

…then one of our interns got picked up for flying with a suspended license, and had to be bailed out…

…and then we couldn’t agree on what type of party to have. Fanny and Fifi wanted to have a fancy dress ball.

Murray wanted a murder mystery party. He saw one on TV once and he thought it sounded like fun.

Laverne and Eulalia said that was the stupidest idea they’d ever heard.

Thornton wanted to have a pool party, but the heater on the pool is still broken. (Otto was supposed to get it repaired, but as usual, he forgot.)

Penelope suggested a wine tasting party, but since we only drink Bluebird Bitter™ around here, that suggestion went nowhere.

In the end, Bob told Ada, Hannah, Eve, and Nan to handle it.

Hannah hired the photographer. Her friend Laticia tipped her off that this guy would work for peanuts.

Ada ordered the flowers. Her friend Charlene recommended this florist because — according to Charlene — he has great taste. And she was right! All the floral arrangements tasted great!

Nan was in charge of the entertainment. She put together a great variety show…

…with a couple of tap dancers…

…a figure skater…

and a comedian.

Eve handled the refreshments.

As usual, Vinnie offered to help. 

So did Eloise…

…and so did Rex.

Great Uncle Norbert and Great Aunt Phyllis flew in from Sydney…

…and Cousin Chester flew in from Cambridge!

A grand time was had by all…even Otto and Bob!

 Here’s to another year of high-flying featherbrained fun!


Happy first day of winter

Magpie worried mate only interested in him for collection of shiny objects

November 1, 2018

From The Onion.

SAN JOSE, CA—Unable to completely dismiss his doubt over his partner’s motives, a male North American black-billed magpie admitted Monday his concerns that his mate was only interested in him for the vast collection of shiny objects lining his nest. 

“I invited her over to the tree to chill, but she spent more time fondling my disco ball keychain than talking to me,” said the bird, who reluctantly answered his beloved’s increasingly detailed questions about how he amassed so many foil gum wrappers. 

“I’m more than just a single misplaced pendant earring—I have a lot to offer someone. I really want to be with her, but do I have to keep collecting more and more shiny things to keep her satisfied?” 

At press time, the magpie, who, like all corvids, is intelligent enough to perform rudimentary counting, was “fairly sure” his stash of glittery hair ties had been dwindling recently.
