Why I hate tweety birds

I’m out riding a I hear, “ reek reek reek” I suddenly stop thinking my crank is falling apart or the bottom bracket is trashed. Just to find out it was a chirping bird Stopped 3 times last week and those birds are still laughing and taunting me.

A birdy just flew by and poo pooed in my eye; Gee I'm glad cows don't fly.

Whenever I'm riding with somebody and want to mock them for not lubing their chain, I say 'Do you hear that flock of birds?'

New wave... and you're complaining about "noise?" Sheesh.

I love the sounds of birds in the morning.

New Wave is just machines "squawking."

Was it birds tweeting or was it an album by The Byrds playing?

And later ELO is disco with violins? But I also like Disco? Very!

I won't post any Nitzer Ebb for a counterpoint, that was some good noise.
