Poisoning Pigeons in the Park

Spring is here
A-suh-puh-ring is here
Life is skittles and life is beer
I think the loveliest time
Of the year is the spring
I do, don't you? 'Course you do
But there's one thing
That makes spring complete for me
And makes every Sunday
A treat for me

All the world seems in tune
On a spring afternoon
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park
Every Sunday you'll see
My sweetheart and me
As we poison the pigeons in the park

When they see us coming
The birdies all try an' hide
But they still go for peanuts
When coated with cyanide
The sun's shining bright
Everything seems all right
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park

- 'Poisoning Pigeons in the Park - Tom Lehrer

Absolute laughable explanation concocted for the RT interview - their side of the story was just being 2 every day kinda guys (no explanation how they knew each other) just visiting to see Salisbury Cathedral. So a 4,000 mile / 2 day round trip from Russia to specifically go to that well-known tourist hotspot, under false names and they just happen to visit Salisbury at the same time there is an assassination attempt on a former Russian spy. What a coincidence.

I am surprised the Kremlin sanctioned such a piss poor story for the media, as it just adds to the general view that Kremlin propaganda has no credibility whatsoever.

Pure comedy gold.

Au contraire, I think that it demonstrates that the Kremlin are fully in control and have nothing but contempt for us.

I particularly enjoyed the bit where they say their friends had recommended they visit Salisbury because of the cathedral's historic clock. But they claim the "muddy slush" prevented them going to the cathedral - a walking distance of 0.7 miles (this was after they'd travelled thousands of miles to visit, and there wasn't much snow/slush on the Salisbury roads/pavements, as can be seen from the photos. But I guess Russians aren't used to snow). And, by accident, they just happened to go 1.1 miles in the opposite direction, taking them (entirely coincidentally) past the Skripal residence in the timeframe when the poisoning happened. Typical tourists. :lol:

At this point, I think the Russians are just taking the p***.

Two things: 1) give Alan a call and say you have an album cover for him, should he restart the Stasi. (I think he still owes us a Best Of package.)

2) It looks like David McCallum was not so far off in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. TV Series.


:shock: :arrow:
