Pigeons Inspired by Wall Street Protest, Occupy National Mall
WASHINGTON — The sentiments of New Yorkers who are occupying Wall Street due to economic troubles have trickled down to Washington, D.C., as evidenced by a mass gathering of pigeons this weekend.
More than 80,026,000 or 14 (depending on the source) pigeons congregated on the National Mall in protest. Protest of what? It is unclear, but most news organizations agree that the discontent centers around the environment.
“It may be the construction on the reflection pool,” says Tamron Hall, an MSNBC News anchor. “There are very few green spaces in D.C., and the populace is upset with the wreckage of this one, though it’s temporary.”
Fox News, on the other hand, has given the demonstration little coverage. While CNN, MSNBC and others covered the “un-American” scare tactics used on pigeons (namely, pretending to lunge at them to scatter organization efforts), Fox continues to focus on Rick Perry’s hair’s run for the GOP nomination.
“Things are really heating up after that last GOP debate,” says Fox anchor Jim Angle. “With Perry’s poor performance, his hair is really seizing on the chance to break rank.”
