Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom in the alley behind Pep Boys. For those under 35 I suggest you google that and you might chuckle a bit louder.
Not Pep Boys. Wild Kingdom.
I didn’t know until today that crows were carnivores. Meat eaters. Salad haters. I am assuming due to the condition of the animal — flat — it was run over and this meal is one of opportunity and not murder. I don’t believe this black beast of the sky swooped down and killed a rat. Or maybe it’s a squirrel?
Which is really just a rat with a fluffy tail and a better press agent.
But the memory of this carnage will now give me pause whenever I see these demon birds from Hell. They were scary enough before but now they have blood on their beaks.
After a quick google search of my own — so I could make another snarky comment and add this Marlin Perkins photo:
I discovered that Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom is back on TV as of 2005. (Animal Planet — check your local listings) But the new version is not as good as the original starring Mr. Perkins and Jim Fowler. I should know because I have not seen it.
