One response to “Fw: Fw: Birds In Australia.”

  1. Denis Dailey says:
    I can't remember if the poet was Ogden Nash or James Thurber who wrote:
     
    Little Birdie in the sky,
    Dropped some white-wash in my eye.]
    I just thank God,
    That cows can't fly.
     
    Seems to be an (in?) appropriate adjunct to the conversation. Denis
