Yes, it's true. It may be the single funniest news headline I have ever read.


Officials in China this week examined the anuses of 10,000 pigeons that were set to be released today in celebration of National Day, amid government fears of a possible terrorist attack. According to reports from state-run media outlets, the birds had their feathers, legs, and anuses searched for "suspicious objects" yesterday, before being packed onto a truck and sent to Tiananmen Square in Beijing for today's ceremony. Many reports on the probe disappeared from China's tightly-controlled media after being published, though some articles and tweets remain online. The entire process was reportedly videotaped.


To be fair, during WWII there were the Bat Bombs. But, really, China? LMAO


The country is ramping up security ahead of today's celebrations, though some critics of China's sprawling government say the pigeon probe hits a little too close to home.


Because the citizens of China are subject to this same type of intrusive searching, should they get jammed up by the police or something. China isn't really the beacon of personal liberty, and many are all to familiar with this kind of treatment.

10,000 pigeons no longer have any dignity in their pigeony little lives.

just spike the pigeon food with a few kilos of laxatives, for 10,000 anyway, and feed them 10 minutes before release, not deadly but highly effective.
would definitely make for interesting T.V. for the national day celebrations.

The problem with pigeon bombs is that the little buggers fly straight back again.

Wow.... There are so many ways I could get myself banned from here for this.

Who would have thought one would go out of their way to make a bird feel so... cheep.

In this case I guess a bird in the hand is worth two in the tush... er, bush.


I suppose this is probeably the least of their probelems.

*groans

I know! It's just a set up for some colorful commentary.

Something along the lines of a bunch of government scientists.... never mind i really won't go there.

There's way more efficient ways terrorists cause terror. I think these violated birds were unnecessarily , well, violated.

I wonder if the scientists who were told to do this were having as much fun as we are?

Well, probably not, come to think of it...


My sides hurt.

I had to look twice to see it if this was in the jokes section. Sadly, it's not.

It sounds funny but, if you think about it, the US has been doing this for quite a while with the TSA, DHS and every police force across the country checking every nook and cranny (and orifice) for terrorist activity.

People are so afraid of being attacked that they're suspicious of everyone and everything. No one feels safe and it keeps people looking over their shoulders. Countries spend billions of dollars every year to protect themselves from terrorism to the point of becoming bankrupt. And this is how the terrorists win.

So.....inquiring minds want to know...just how big of a bomb do the chinese think will fit up a pigeon's backside?

Somewhere I think there is actual written guidance, we need to get a copy.

Technically, in birds, these are called cloacae, not an anuses...

Amusing nevertheless to read! S&F
