    Cyndi's airborne critic

    Somewhere over Massachusetts is a sparrow who apparently doesn't care for '80s rock.

    Cyndi Lauper was reaching for a high note during her opening number at Saturday's KISS-108-sponsored concert in Mansfield, Mass., when from the sky came a white glob of bird poop.

    The fecal critique landed in her open mouth.

    Showing more aplomb than Tippi Hedren ever displayed in "The Birds," the Brooklyn-born rocker wiped her tongue on her sleeve and kept on rockin'.

    The 50-year-old singer did kvetch backstage that a bird once plopped on her head while she was on stage.

    "My grandmother says it's good luck, but I think it's disgusting," she moaned.

    Maybe birds just want to have fun.

    When I was in high school a bird did the deed on one of my friend's heads during lunch. His reaction was far more funny than the actual incident. :smug:

    I always mentionin my rider that I won't play unless I'm behind a wall of chicken wire, to avoid accidents such as this.

    I'd hate to see the bird whose poop wouldn't fit through chicken wire.

    I think birds may have a hard time pooping sideways.

    That's almost as funny as the Randy Johnson bird pitch.

    Edit: BTW- For you PETA types, I meant funny in the cosmic, what-are-the-odds-of-that-happening funny.
     
  17. nothing will ever be that funny.
