Video of the Year. This is why YouTube was so necessary. I'm a better man for having watched this 20 times.

When did birds start "infesting" trees?

Birdy birdy in the sky. Drop a turdy in my eye. Aren't you glad that cows don't fly?

Local news forced to eat manifestation of its own product -- pictures at 11.

God, I'm so sick of this video.

It is a fake video. This did not really happen.

For the record, the news ticker at the bottom of the screen dates this video to having taken place on either December 28th or December 29th.

There are two stations in the USA that have the name "7 Action News" or any varient thereof. One of them is Detroit. The other is in Albuqurque, NM. So, if this happened (which it didn't), it happened in Albuqurque, NM.

Additionaly, there is no such bird as the Canadian brown finch.

So... Fake video. Still funny though.

Fake or not, that was the best. Thing. EVER.

Never underestimate the Canadian Brown Finch.

It's chief weapons are Cuteness, Noise, and a certainty that it has more civil rights than American journalists do.

Plus, it can sing in both English and French. Admittedly, it doesn't know all the words to the national anthem, but if it sings along to the Canadian version it sure sounds like the American anthem.

If I'm not mistaken there is a PALM tree in the far background. Canada, the second largest producer of Bananas in the world also produces large amounts of valued Palm oil...

I used to have a palm tree in the yard at one of the houses I lived in at Trail, BC.

I also had one in the yard at one of the houses I lived in in Burnaby, BC.

Yes? You were saying?
