yes I am a cold unfeeling anglo saxon. Sparrows tweeting their little hearts out in the springtime mean nothing to me. I'm glad you did away with them.

You'll not succeed in mistaking us, Steve.

We all know your deep concern about the piafs of Paris.

That's why you are trying to find the responsible...

From a science test of an English 4th grader:

English sparrows and starlings
eat the farmers grain and soil his corpse.

Not related to the topic, but the English kids also wrote:
A person should take a bath once in the summer, and not quite so often in the winter.

Now, is that Anglo-Saxon or what?

Porc? Why pigs? Are you trying to say pigs wash more often than anglo saxons?

And yes Francis I have a confession to make, I started this thread because I was so upset about the little birds of Paris.

This is how they deal with piafs in the Netherlands, if they ignore the eviction order they get treated to a load of grapeshot (and then the sorpus delicti is
recovered and taxidermically pampered and then displayed in a natural history museum with other historically outstanding sparrows. It's true!)

All sparrows deserve to die a terrible death.


"Why?" I hear you ask.

Because they are murderers.



http://www.rhymes.org.uk/who_killed_cock_robin.htm

Who killed Cock Robin
"Who killed Cock Robin?" "I," said the Sparrow,
"With my bow and arrow, I killed Cock Robin."
"Who saw him die?" "I," said the Fly,
"With my little eye, I saw him die."
"Who caught his blood?" "I," said the Fish,
"With my little dish, I caught his blood."
"Who'll make the shroud?" "I," said the Beetle,
"With my thread and needle, I'll make the shroud."
"Who'll dig his grave?" "I," said the Owl,
"With my pick and shovel, I'll dig his grave."
"Who'll be the parson?" "I," said the Rook,
"With my little book, I'll be the parson."
"Who'll be the clerk?" "I," said the Lark,
"If it's not in the dark, I'll be the clerk."
"Who'll carry the link?" "I," said the Linnet,
"I'll fetch it in a minute, I'll carry the link."
"Who'll be chief mourner?" "I," said the Dove,
"I mourn for my love, I'll be chief mourner."
"Who'll carry the coffin?" "I," said the Kite,
"If it's not through the night, I'll carry the coffin."
"Who'll bear the pall? "We," said the Wren,
"Both the cock and the hen, we'll bear the pall."
"Who'll sing a psalm?" "I," said the Thrush,
"As she sat on a bush, I'll sing a psalm."
"Who'll toll the bell?" "I," said the bull,
"Because I can pull, I'll toll the bell."
All the birds of the air fell a-sighing and a-sobbing,
When they heard the bell toll for poor Cock Robin.
