  3. Dearest Victor,
    It is alarming this notice of a lot of pigeon brains around us in this world!
    They of course lack any reading as that is a perfect way to stimulate and activate any 'thinking'... provided they got something passed down genetically!
    Hugs,

    1. The only reading some do is on text and they learn new words like LOL, OMG and whatever else. Can you imagine Shakespeare writing like that? Methinks LOL!!!

      God bless, Mariette.

  4. There was a late night show comedian who had a segment where he would go out on the street and ask people questions. I'm sure many people answered them correctly, but the only ones that ended up on the air were the 'pigeon brains'.

    1. That is probably because there are a lot of pigeons about, Kathy. Some of our quiz shows on TV ask the most inane questions.

      God bless always.

    1. Oh no ... don't blame me ... these are not my answers, Martha. These are genuine quiz answers on TV. I am probably more stupid than that! In fact I did buy a Tower of Pisa when on holiday. When I got the model out of the box the tower was leaning to one side. So I stuck some small rubber pads underneath the base to straighten the tower. See ??? I am smart !!!

      Keep smiling. God bless.

    1. It seems that these days young people are rebelling against learning. They just don't want to be educated.

      God bless, Mimi.

  13. Funny, and Pigeons are the stupidest of all birds. Ever watch them eat a piece of bread? THey grab it and throw it around where other pigeons fight over it. You would think that just once, one dumb bird would think to step on the bread!
