Bird Hat, part 2

Pictures recently taken at a Starbucks in Santa Monica showing a woman wearing a birdhouse hat have been circulating around the internet. As usual, WU is ahead of the curve on such things, since we've already posted about the 1968 predecessor of her hat. Though we'll need a few more sightings of birdhouse hats before we declare them officially "no longer weird."

The pigeon sh1t in her hair should solve here desire to be different pretty soon.

A bird is in an open cage where foodstuffs are served and not one of the restaurant employees or patrons thought to raise questions about sanitation?

This is just one more reason not to patronize fast food restaurants. It is obvious the workers and the patrons are all low grade morons.

I observe that the quality of restaurants comes in two phases: Low quality restaurants take your money first before you eat and better quality restaurants take your money after you have eaten.

Why would she choose to go with a cage with no floor? And not bother to line it?

Most women I know are "batty" in the "belfry" so I think they have the wrong winged creature up there .... hehehehehe

What they said (except for BrokeDad, whom I will leave to patty's tender mercies).

I own 5 parrots. One is cage-free, and I will allow that he is allowed in the kitchen, and that we have no problems with birds being around human food, beyond the concern over what is poisonous to them. But then, our birds are strictly indoor birds, and are kept in good health.

It's hard to tell from the image, but it seems to me there might be a thin piece of clear plastic on the bottom of the cage.

In any case, she had beautiful hair, which clearly shows the benefit of fertilizer because even without the possibility of bird poop, she's definitely a shithead.

No way! Besides the poop issue, it would be uncomfortable to wear. Oh and, BD 😛 Scot 💋

Tempts me to make some kind of a flexible wire mesh tube, big enough to accommodate an adult rat, and wear it as a "boa".
Oh! Or a live cricket in a tea ball on a chain as a "necklace".
The options are endless.

CannyScot, you don't own a parrot. It owns you. I live with one and let her run around the house but I keep an eye on her. However, she goes back into her cage when I cook or sit down to eat. Otherwise she will continuously bug me by trying to climb into my lap and reach up onto the table.

If you think birds own you try living with a cat. My mom had a bird (a sun conure) then she got a chihuahua. They fought over mom and the bird kicked the dogs ass, which cost the bird her happy home.
