Coo? No, I said COOL! Cool!

February 3, 2009

Do you ever wonder who’s at the very, very bottom of the human dignity chain?

Well, it turns out he was picked up at an airport with two live pigeons stuffed in his tights. I mean, the tights ALONE are embarrassing enough.

But that’s not all. Mr. Dimwit was also hiding bird eggs, and samples of EGGPLANT.

To recap this story: man, pigeons, tights, eggplant.

And finally, readers please note the caption warning against using this photo for ad campaigns. I am not making this up.

So, you folks looking for illustrations to advertise leg hair remover or poultry sleeping bags, you’re out of luck.

And Adidas, even though they appear to be your tights, you just FORGET about a product placement deal!

Pigeons on the ankles… Hmmm… Is this like a degenerative result of being pigeon-toed?

Well, maybe it’s just that his fly is down…

I think the bigger story here is that we have finally located Bigfoot.

Did he really expect to sneak through customs with his tights around his ankles and two birds peeking out? He wouldn’t even be able to walk straight, and if Melbourne Airport is still anything like I remember it those crocs and emus sure get in your way while you drag your two-piece luggage set across the dusty concourse with one hand and simultaneously struggle to hold on to your Explorer Series ™ khaki safari hat which is being blown away by the twin-prop with the other.

Well, seeing as he is called Mr. Dimwit, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. I mean, what are the odds?
