Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”


 












I got a kick out of this photo. Every goth girl should have her very own pet raven to ride with on the subway, right? 

All joking aside, some birds get unfair treatment when they're named. A group of ravens is referred to as an unkindness. A group of crows is referred to as a murder.

Who is in charge of naming birds and what do they have against them?

Birds are most amazing. We feed them here. All are welcome.

Have a fabulous day. ♥

That lady would scare me but at least she doesn't have to worry about social distancing.

A group of parrots is called the Democratic Party.

Sandee: Yes, they are amazing, especially crows & ravens. We feed the neighborhood birds, squirrels, possums, raccoons, stray cats... it's an open house.

Granny Annie: Lol about social distancing. Every goth I've ever met was a sad, damaged person inside and was just putting up walls around them so they wouldn't get hurt again.

Ed Bonderenka: Lol. Very clever. A group of parrots is called a pandemonium & I would describe a group of democrats that way. 😉

While i do not envy her being Goth, i do envy her the pet raven. Or, i should say, i wouldn't mind getting to be friends with a raven. Most clever birds.

Bigger Girl was not Goth so much but she dressed that way. Being autistic, children making sudden noises scares her half to death, so she wore Goth to keep mothers shooing their children away from her. She called it soccer mom repellant.

Messymimi: Exactly. I would love to have a pet raven. Exceedingly smart birds.

Lol re: Bigger Girl's "soccer mom repellent." We can all use a can of that now and then.
