Baby Pigeons?

Have you ever wondered why you don't see baby pigeons?

Have you ever wondered why pigeons spend so much time walking 
when they could be flying?

Some of US spend so much time walking when we could be flying.

This is why you don't see Baby pigeons -

First of all, unlike other birds, pigeons hide their nests. 
When they emerged in Asia, pigeons were cliff-dwellers. Now 
they build their messy nests of sticks inside the guts of 
bridges, or atop tall buildings, or on top of your air 

Also, pigeons are very protective and babying parents. They lay 
only two eggs at a time, and spoil those babies shamefully. By 
the time they leave the nest, the babies are almost the same 
size as their parents. 

That's why you don't see baby pigeons. 

The parents spoil the kids by keeping them sheltered and inside 
away from the world until they are almost grown.

Is it any wonder why they fly as little as possible? 
Think about that the next time you see a pigeon, 
a big one walking.

Laugh of the Day: 
Talk about low self esteem and walking instead of flying.

King of low walking and thinking:

Classic Rodney Dangerfield lines:

I was so poor growing up, that if I hadn't been a boy, I'd have 
had nothing to play with!

A girl phoned me the other day and said, "Come on over, there's 
nobody home." I went right over... and nobody was home!

If it weren't for pickpockets I'd have no sex life at all!

During sex, my girlfriend always wants to talk to me. 
Just the other night she called me from a hotel!

One day as I came home early from work, I saw a guy jogging 
naked. I asked him, "Hey buddy, why are you doing that?" He 
said, "because you came home early."

It's been a rough day. 
I got up this morning, put on a shirt and a button fell off. 
I picked up my briefcase and the handle came off. 
I'm afraid to go to the bathroom.

I was such an ugly kid that when I played in the sandbox the cat 
kept covering me up.

I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a 
radio and a toaster!

I was such an ugly baby, my mother never breast-fed me. She told 
me that she only liked me as a friend.

I'm so ugly, my dad carries around the picture of the kid that 
came with his wallet.

I remember the time I was kidnapped and they sent a piece of my 
finger to my father. He said he wanted more proof.

I went to see my doctor. "Doctor, every morning when I get up 
and look in the mirror and I feel like throwing up. What's 
wrong with me?" He said, "I don't know but your eyesight is
