Hummingbird of Doom

strange look from hummingbird

NSA’s got nothin’ on the wrath of Bird

“You must have done something, otherwise it wouldn’t be looking at us like that!” She was right, of course, but so what? Now the Great Avenger of Righteous Karma had us in his sights. You can’t hide from these things, they’re like organic drones from Hell. Poke your eyes out, sew your lips shut, chase you into the gorge! Nothing for it but to get a great big cat and hang the feeder lower.

That’s Taos for you, everyone dies twice. Once before you get here, once again before you leave. The bird is the WORD, chilluns!

Any questions?

          it’s not your fault – the same thing happens whenever i see that Family Guy episode, or Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket (or just listen to the FMJ soundtrack).

          that song really is one of the great ear worms of all time!
