One for each mighty arm.

Technically, it's a cloaca.

Jeez, how many "birds with arms" websites are there, anyway?

(I do not really want to know that, it was a rhetorical question).

This is very interesting book about pigeons. I'm pretty sure many people didn't pick it up because of the disturbing image on the cover.

Some of them are exercising their right to bear arms, and some their right to bare arms, but there's one badass finch (?) about halfway down who is doing both.

/r/birdswitharms is all well and good, but my entry for the best single-serving humorous subreddit has to be /r/thingsforants.

I think it is actually a double but I can't be bothered to find the previously.

So muscular! Who would have thought.

That aside, they definitely captured the fact that most birds are yelling "fuck you!" at the top of their lungs all day. Where late the sweet birds sang, my ass.

They all aspire to the burly burninarity of Trogdor.

well that was the shortest transition I've ever had from "This sounds so dumb" -> "This is so fucking funny"

Are you not entertained?

Why yes, I am.

Birds *should* have arms.

If I weren't at work, I would totally rickroll y'all with Liartownusa's take on this.

Oh man, I just walked by the ceramics area and saw someone just finished a magnificently pissed off pigeon with a giant hand givin' the bird. It's basically this crossed with this. Too bad I can't share photos of student work.

OMG, the goose! The magpie! The owl with a coffee cup!

THE ROOSTER!

Don't let my Roopert the roo see this. I'll be having to lock the knives up next.
posted by BlueHorse at 3:01 PM on July 7


Knives?? I shudder at the thought of the magpies that live around our house having arms. The next thing would be guns, seriously. Those guys are out of control as it is. Not even the cats are going near them.

I believe all of these are sourced from the Subreddit linked by Brent Parker above.

I'll match your "birds with arms" and raise you some "cows with guns".
posted by HuronBob at 5:54 PM on July 7


I was having one of those face/vase experiences: is it funny? is it disturbing? I CAN'T TELL! until I hit this one and made an audible *snerk!* noise.
