Friday Fuckwit

YEP folks, the silly season is over and we're back to normal programming and in the interest of being a better blogger her for your elucidation and humoration is the first of 2011's Friday Fuckwits:


The Saudis have very ruffled feathers after catching yet another spy on their protected soil. The cloak-and-dagger apprehension of Saudi Arabian security agents have them claiming to have brought down a high-flying spy, code-named R65.
The officials are accusing Israel of sending a specially trained vulture into their airspace near the city of Hayel. The feathered operative apparently made locals nervous by looking down on them last week. (I'd have been more nervous about what might be 'reigning' down if you know what I mean.) When captured, the bird was found with a GPS transmitter and tag with the number R65 from Tel Aviv University stamped on it.
Suspecting a clever Zionist plot, officials locked the bird up. Researchers in Israel say the bird is just a normal vulture, and part of an innocent long-term study. But it’s not the first accusation of suspected animal agents being sent off to do dirty work on foreign soil.
When tourists near the coastal resort of Sharm el Sheikh were attacked by a shark late last year, one Egyptian official reportedly suggested the biting menace might be an Israeli-trained provocateur.
And spy birds are nothing new to the world of spooks and watchers. In 1940, British covert operatives were involved in a battle of the skies, by training peregrine falcons to take down Nazi-trained homing pigeons.
It's a jungle out there! 

Have an awesome weekend folks. We're turning into Culture Vultures and off to the Sydney Festival Latino Night, Los Lobos and some Apero if the weather holds! Ole!

Methinks a certain race of people may be a little paranoid.

Hmmmm... not the most open-minded of governments are they... then what government anywhere is truly open-minded. They act as if they're doing the will of the people, they actually have to kowtow to economic realities which means taxation and keeping the status quo. It's all bullshit, which is why I don't vote as I can't be responsible for the bastards getting in!

As a "newbie" to your blog..."Friday Fuckwits" is great!
It feels good to laugh out loud as I have my morning coffee!

"Feathered Flying Agents" do, indeed go back in history.
I recently saw an Impressionist painting that showed an intricate battle during the Franco-Prussian War and there, in the sky, were "feathered spies"! Mon Dieu!

Enjoy "Los Lobos" - a Bay Area favourite!

Tom said...

they can't all be wackos, can they?

but, that bird does look very suspicious

laughingwolf said...

hmph... how come they say nothing about the fleas of a thousand camels infesting their beards, as the curse goes? :P lol

Kate Hanley said...

So I guess the vulture doesn't know how to use it's cloaking device. I hope it knows not to give anything but name, rank and serial number. It'll be hard to top this fuckwit!

Betsy said...

Oh, I read about this! haha.

Kath Lockett said...

Oh in these difficult times who knows who is spying. Best to err on the side of caution and keep a beady eye on those evil emus, bothersome budgies, sneaky seagulls, malicious mutton birds, lying lapwings, awful albatross(es?), devious ducks and cruel canaries.....

Megan said...

I hope Los Lobos still got it!

Mim said...

oh of course it's a spy! why else have a flying bird? Do they think it goes back and discusses what it saw - in HEBREW??? everyone knows that birds can't talk hebrew!

nick said...

Watch out, there's another vulture on your window sill spying on all your domestic misdemeanours. So stop sweeping all those crumbs under the rug NOW or they'll snitch.

Ces said...

Aha! They better check under their camels' humps!

PattiKen said...

Of course he's a spy. Just look at those shifty eyes.

Carolina said...

One should check how it takes its Martini. If shaken, not stirred... well, that'll be proof enough for me ;-)

Betty said...

good one! hope you had a great time at Los Lobos

Jill said...

Really?? OH BROTHER! Just as believable as "WONDER DOG!"

Have fun at the festival!

I'm going to have to keep an eye on those guinea fowl, who knows who might have sent them - and they must have been "sent" because they keep peering through the windows!
