Don’t Feed The Birds

THE BIRD: A warning to the phantom pigeon feeder.

THE BIRD: A warning to the phantom pigeon feeder.

I’ll file this one in the Victor Meldrew deparment of sign spotting. For those who don’t recognize the name, Victor Meldrew is a British sitcom character who was constantly driven to distraction by other people’s idiocy. In the above case, the sign writer manages to succinctly project: malice (ur time is coming), sarcasm (there are no pigeons dying round here) and a direct order (!), carried off perfectly, I would say, if it was not for the fact that this sign is posted over a permanently shuttered business on one of the most depressing corners of my neighborhood in Brooklyn.

THE CORNER:

If anything, a bit of pigeon poo would liven the place up a bit.
