Edited because I totally fell for this spoof. Argh.
Yes, satire, thy name is Rock City Times. I am curious, though, if anyone know how the blackbirds faired this year.
I thought about adding this to the end of the other blackbird die-off thread (from last year), but started a new one instead. Will bow to the mod's
judgement on whether to keep this as a new thread, but thought this should be spotlighted.
Yes, it happened again, this time with even more dire consequences. The beautiful blackbirds are now feared extinct.
This marks the fourth consecutive year that the birds have died at midnight on New Year’s Eve in the same area. The number of birds this year
greatly exceed previous year’s totals.
“We heard the first bird fall at 11:57 p.m., then probably 10 more over the next minute,” local resident Mabel Jean Jackson tells us. “We pulled
the lawn chairs out on the front porch and didn’t hear anything for a couple of minutes. Then at midnight on the dot the sky fell out. They just
kept falling. We couldn’t see the ground after a few seconds.”
