Hitchcock's Revenge

Just so that we understand there is nothing new under the sun, the other day thousands of birds fell from the sky in Arkansas -- and in 671, according to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, there was also a great mortality of birds.

If the pattern continues, perhaps we can see the events of 672 repeated this year. In that year, king Cenwahl died, so if I were actor Ken Wahl, I'd watch my step.


  1. I had actually finished reading your post feeling a little puzzled by the actor reference and had moved on to another when the whole "Ken Wahl" thing actually suck in...I actually was choking on my laughter. Thank you!!!! :-)

  2. Yes, it was kind of a long-fuse grenade joke.

  3. I heard about this afterword, but I was in Ft. Worth, TX at the time and birds were going absolutely nuts. I mean I have never seen anything like it. Here is the best picture I have.
