Another rant about those #$Q%@! ****roaches of the sky (seagulls)

So I am driving my car to the movies today and don't make any stops or drive under bridges. Get to the parking lot of the theater, get out and see four different large spots where some c***roach dropped a load on my hood!!!! Those little bastards really must like sports cars to be able to do that to a moving car. I had to make a quick dash to the nearby store to pickup some cleaning supplies. Think I am going to have to start playing "Flight of the Valkyrie" whenever I start driving now.... little bastards....

Same thing happened to me today. i just washed my car and shined up my new wheels that i've only had a couple days now and a bird got me and it was a big load from one bird. My car is black too. I still haven't had a chance to clean it so it's still there

few weeks ago I spent 4 hours cleaning my car, got home and found a huge shit on my car. I was so pissed but quickly cleaned it and that was that.

I once had an entire flock of Canadian Geese simultaneously take a dump on my car. Granted it wasn't in my camaro. Needless to say I was the laugh of the town as I drove to the car wash.

Had an '82 Camaro; gutless, but a beautiful, shiny black. I always kept it washed, waxed, looking top shelf. However, one day, A bird left a HUGE turd right in the middle of the hood, and, for the next three days, I wasn't able to find the time to wash it off... it was aggravating, but I did not know that it would do ACTUAL damage.

When I did wash it off, the paint underneath had been eaten away: The clear coat was nowhere to be found, and a little primer was even showing through. The only way to repair it was to have a body shop repaint the ENTIRE hood.

So, yeah, now, the second that one of those flying rats drops bombs on my car, I'm working to get it gone... even if it means slamming on my brakes in the number two lane of the 405 and pouring the rest of my beer on it to wash it away... and I'll use my hands, if needed.

Came home to this.....



A Canada goose decided my roof was a good place to live.... The FIRST thing I thought was "Thank God the Camaro is in the garage!!!" Now that this bird finally decided to leave, I have to figure out how to get the poop off the roof of my house...

My friends and I have joked about this in my 'vert after one shit on my seat. I have a Saiga 12 to mount on it. I'd like to see the little wing-ed bastards dodge that wall of lead. On a brighter note, I've already hit one in my car as well as a bat. 3 bird I have ever hit mid flight and second bat. I have no idea how I attract so much attention of the flying sorts. At least I dodged the two buzzards...
