Move Along, Nothing to See Here…

posted by on January 8 at 12:59 PM

Dozens of bird carcasses litter downtown Austin, Texas, prompting police to shut down the main north-south route through downtown. Two cops report feeling sick; health officials report “no threat to public safety.” Still, as long as birds are mysteriously dropping dead from the sky, why not be prepared to stay indoors for a while?


Also dead: the inventor of instant ramen.

Ironic it happened in Austin Texas.... Hmmm who was their former Gov. again? Hmmm... was it George W Bush??!!! God is sending plauges to Texas. They must atone for giving America and the world the evil doer George Bush!!!

But I thought Austin was a liberal outpost in Texas. Sort of the Lone Star of the Lone Star State.

Whoa, combined with today's mysterious gas smell in NYC and i think we have uncovered a plot of some sort!

@2 - that's the myth - the reality is that Texas would be a swing state, if not for the panhandle. Go to my birthplace, San Antonio, if you don't believe me.

A friend of mine constantly references a study some med experts did in Austin, where they had a non-smoker run a mile and then tested the content of his lungs. Apparently, running a mile outdoors in Austin is the inhalation equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes.

So yeah, their oh-so-clean air may a role in those health problems.
