Noted



Someone wrote a "Look up... Sometimes there are falcons" message in chalk right near where red-tailed hawk parents Christo and Dora have their nest with three youngins in Tompkins Square Park.

I'm thinking the message leaver:
• Was trying to be funny
• Doesn't know the difference between a falcon and a red-tailed hawk
• Was suggesting a band name — Sometimes There Are Falcons is pretty cool.

"Look up from your phone dumbass"

I think it's some kinda reference to Atlanta. I think.

Smart, Grieve. Those first two options didn't even occur to me.

I'm betting they don't know the difference between a falcon and a hawk. I can't tell you how many times I hear, "It's a falcon/eagle/owl!" One guy even said - and I kid you not - "Oh look, a cat!"

I should also note there sometimes ARE falcons, but they are usually soaring high.

For some reason this reminds me of a 1970s band, The Fruit-Eating Bears; they performed a song called "Gimme Back My Foreskin," which made me laugh so hard when I heard it that I literally fell on the club floor.

Someone should remake The Birds with Naomi Watts.

@3:12. And the song is on Youtube, but by the Gizmos. "Why oh why I'd have to be circumcised/who made decision sure wasn't wise." You were rolling on the floor laughing before it became an abbreviation.
