                               Some Thoughts on Senator Byrd

     Recently, Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia died. Serving 57 years in the Senate, he was an American of great stature, the third American Bird in stature in fact, behind Larry and Big.

     And who would win a jump ball between Larry and Big? (Robert could throw the ball up cept he dead). Big has those skinny legs, apparently no knees to bend and really short arms, but he is 8 foot 2 and Larry’s getting older. At any rate there’d be some trash talking.

          Larry: Dodo. Bird brain. Chicken shit.

          Big: You are one of the whitest, ugliest men I’ve ever seen.

     Which leads us to the first and last annual Bird Awards.
