Ah, nightmare fodder, it's been so long.

Veiny musclebound seagull, I am looking at YOU.

I think it's funny how much more personality a bird has with arms than without. My favorite is the bird with a cocked head that turns into a confused shrug with the arm addition.

Turks with arms.

I've always said that birds would look better with little arms. I think these pictures prove me right.

Ancient, but surprisingly never gets old.

These birds are armed and dangerous.

aw c'mon, you were thinking the same thing!

And now I won't be able to look at a seagull without thinking of the cast of Jersey Shore.

Thanks a lot, Internet.

Cows with Guns?

Oh thank heavens, it's just photoshops of birds with human arms. I was worried I was going to revisit the time my Quaker parrot got a hold of that air cooled, belt fed machine gun and all the carnage that followed.

Besides, birds with teeth is a way creepier thing.

They had to beef up to protect themselves from Steven Seagull. It's a seagull arms race, really.

These people are just excersing their right to arm birds.

I already have a massive bird phobia. What on earth made me decide to click on that link? Won't sleep for days now. (I did like the little bird with the trenchcoat, umbrella & flowers, though.)

That was Wanderlei Silva's hardest fight.

The training regimen was gruesome----all those black market surgeons sewing arms to de-winged birds to try and simulate his opponent's attack.

Birds already have arms. We call them "wings".

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this is the best website about birds with arms I've come across.

Huh. And here I thought it was the right to bear arms. Whaddaya know.

Take heart in knowing that this is probably somebody's fetish.

This was way more awesome than I expected.

I don't want to piss in anyone's swimming pool or anything, but I think some of these might be photoshopped.

> Birds already have arms. We call them "wings".

Oh, man. You're right! And here I just thought the pictures were comical.

They also have cocks. We call them "roosters".

The frightening thing is how quickly birds with arms begin to look normal. Like, now a bird without arms just looks naked.

Well, now I know what "come at me, bro!" means. Kind of wish I'd left that one alone.

That's my favorite too, pemberkins.

The penguins actually look like they were meant to have arms because their wings are the most arm-like.

This isn't real. It's just parrotty.
