Kamikaze Magpie Under Seige

By rosebud 2 October 2008 46

Allied Forces (ACT Parks people) were today seen mounting a counter attack to rid fair Ainslie of the Magpie menace that has terrorised local residents for the last four weeks. 

“He’s mad!” said one frightened resident, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution. 

“The last month has been terrible. I can’t put on me lotto or have a cold one at Edgars because ol’ Yamamoto dives bombs me everytime I leave the house,” said another victim of this indiscriminate winged terror.

Parks officers confirmed there had been a recent flurry of phone calls to the Magpie Hotline.

“You one of them that called the hotline?” ranger lady enquired when this eye-witness slowed the car to take a gander at the crime scene.

“No, but he went me the other day. I think he wanted to take me eye out!” I confirmed.

“We’ll try our best Ma’am,” stated the second officer. 

I am sure I speak for all peace loving citizens of Ainslie when I wish them good luck and good hunting (for the tree huggers, they were actually trying to capture it in a cage – not sure how that will go. Do they maybe have a minature cyclist in there?).

What’s Your opinion?

LOL never had THAT happen. Over on the south-west slopes they call them “happy families”. They really are like skinny chooks – I love them, even though they make just as much mess of your garden mulch. Had a family of 5 (then 9) at our house on the Woomargama Station…

Choughs (Chuffs) don’t dive bomb you.

Instead they come running out of the bushes like small black roadrunners and peck your ankles.

“You’re not thinking of Choughs? Slightly smaller than a crow, white patches on their wings but much smaller slightly curved beak and small red eyes.”

Nope – know the difference between a chough and a crow. (Like double the body size for starters…)

There’s plenty of those Noisy Friars around Corroboree Park.

Some people are f***** – leave the poor things alone!

Bike riders can still take other precautions, full faced helmets and the like, but peoples vanity seems to prevent them doing so

You ARE kidding right PsydFX? Newt bright idea you’ll have is for all cyclists to wear motorbike helmets! I can’t even start to imagine breathing and staying at a reasonable temperature commuting on a bike at this time of year.

Sorry PsydFX, but your “full faced helmet” idea is quite hair-brained!
