Man, I picked a bad day to wear corncob earrings on my walk in the woods



Tweet, tweet! RAR NOM NOM NOM NOM *crunch crunch crunch*

Kelli found this disturbing illustration. She says she would've looked at the property, but was prevented by her fear of man-size birds.

Looks like you could move into a hollered-out tree an borry a cuppa sugar from your neighbors Pogo Possum and Porky Pine.

What - is there a town named Champaign? That's like calling a town Bentleigh, or Cocaign.

This property would have been much more appealing to me if they had used Big Bird in the illustration instead of a mutant finch.

Just think of the meal at Thanksgiving! I want me some of that thar man-bird.

"Hey, Maw, kin I has da drumstick."

"Boy, don't you see? Everyone can git a drumstick!"

I'm the first to comment??? YEAH! It might have helped if the picture looked even remotely real. Scary large bird.

Gamzulatov said...

I believe it is possible that the bird is normal size and the trees and sign are very tiny.

In which case Bill from Bill's Bayou will have some very unhappy thanksgiving guests.

In this week's installment of Mark Trail vs. Birdzilla, Mark says something dramatic about wetlands, and the big dog gets eaten. Stay tuned.

"Lot For Sale"?

I think the bird begs to differ.

Sorry, youngblood! I just didn't get to my computer this morning.

I actually live in Champaign, and I can tell you that the gigantic bird droppings are our municipal nightmare.

The bird has ambitions. Go out and Google the word "mihirung": if this property had a few of those and some phororuschids, I'd be on the place like a (prehistoric half-ton flightless) duck on a june bug.

(A few months back, my wife and I were looking at houses in an subdivision called "Lost Valley", just northwest of Dallas. I wanted to sue over the deceptive title: there wasn't a single dinosaur to be seen, and not even so much as a caveman. Well, the place had a lot of Southern Methodist University fratboys out that way, but I prefer my monsters from a dead age to be a bit more evolved.)

These are the funniest comments ever!
"Lost Valley" conjured visions of "Sudden Valley" and I immediately flashed on Japanese businessmen watching in horror as George Michael spazzes in a jet pack and a giant moleman destroys the false houses. If you haven't seen Arrested Development, check it out!

Bet they lay massive eggs.

Imagine an omelette large enough to feed a whole community.

The commentary is priceless.

There are multiple towns named Champaign, actually. I happen to live in this one, and I assure you, the address listed is in a crap area. More "vacant lot" than "magical forest".

The birds are real though.
