I was browsing the Sunday Times and came across a little snippet.
I’m sure they wont mind me
stealing robbing borrowing it ……
Council officials have warned a woman that birds in her garden are singing too loudly. Environmental health officers told Dorothy Berry, 65, that the blackbirds in her trees were upsetting neighbours in Fulham, west London.
“I have a lovely garden in which the blackbirds sing in the trees. But I really don’t see what we can do about that.”
These morons are complaining about blackbirds?
This is so stupid, it just has to be true.
I don’t know which is worse – the neighbours, for complaining, or the council for listening to them.
I’d ram the neighbours’ iPods up their backsides and play Status Quo at them at full volume for a week.
They might appreciate the beauty of a blackbird then.
