This Morning

I ate all the birds in the world -- pigeons, eagles, ovenbirds, sparrows, barn owls, yellowhammers, goldfinches, greenfinches, orioles, robins, quail, kingfishers, all of them, and a dragonfly that tried to buzz past my head. I made each one call me Jesus Christ, then I swallowed.

Dear Shimmy,

As Vice President of Shimmykat Fans (Evanston Branch), I want to commend you on eating all of the birds in the world. You're the only cat I know. I once ate a squirrel whole. Amen.

Shimmy, this is a fantasy that occurs to many of us.

I pray to the space where the icons once stood when this happens.

And I pray no bird gets too close to get me started...because once you've eaten one....

you start thinking like an Architect...or so i've heard

Absolutely -- once you've eaten one bird, the rest come down like a tower of babel . . . and you know you're the Architect. The argument from design!
