Funny Thing Happened Today....

So I was out driving today, and I am on the exit ramp of a highway, that leads to another highway, so I am going about 50 around this curve.* I see ahead of me that there is this pigeon walking on the road in front of me, but he is moving, so I decide the is no reason to swerve, since birds usually fly to get out of the way when you get close.* I dont want to swerve cause there is really no reason too, and it has been raining a lot so the road is wet.* Well I keep on my path, the bird goes out of my sight, and........clunk......clunk.......uh oh!!!
I look in the rearview mirror and see feathers spread out on the road and some in the air, and the pancaked pigeon :shock:* Luckily it was raining so there was no mess leftover to clean up.* Well today I learned that sometimes birds do not move when you are driving toward them.

Re: Funny Thing Happened Today....

Shotgun, car.... same thing. Pigeons are fun to kill :-) Squirrels are a close second, followed by feral cats.

By the way, "pulverizer" is a fitting username

Re: Funny Thing Happened Today....

Squirrels like to run in front of my car. It's like they think they'll find refuge under my tires...

Re: Funny Thing Happened Today....

Never hit a live animal (other then the thousands of bugs who have died at the hands of my grill and windshield). I did run over 3 dead squirels once. It was kind of sickening because I still had my learner's permit then. My mom was in the car with me and we were pulling up to a light. Well there were 7 dead squirels in the road (someone go crazy with a shotgun???) for some bizzare reason. I tried to avoid them going slow up to the light but I managed to run over 3 of them. That is a sickening feeling when the car lurches up over them and you hear the crunch.
