Oh, and did you know that Dodos were basically big pigeons? They were related.

Also, it seems that the Dodo was not hunted to death. In fact, the sailors back then *tried* eating it, but apparently the meat was barely palatable. The demise of the Dodo was already underway, so they didn't have to be eaten to become exztinct.

I believe Quails are smaller, and you can still eat them. You just have to eat a lot to get sated.

But that Inca Dove is cute.

We'll murder them all amid laughter and merriment.
Except for the few we take home to experiment.
My pulse will be quickenin'
With each drop of strychnine
We feed to a pigeon.
It just takes a smidgin!
To poison a pigeon in the park.

I'm thinking of having myself committed.

They became extinct because they were stupid. I know, I've seen Ice Age. That doesn't explain how the rest of the pigeon varieties survived, though.

Furthermore, I believe that The Threadô should be killed.

Because all the predators were afraid they might catch their stupid? And as to why they just didn't die out, you don't have to be smart to breed like rabbits.

It's true, the poor are a fine example of this.

That's a comment that might be considered thread-killing stuff, but as I don't want The Thread™ to end with a post like that I feel obliged to add another post.

And how about a change of topic: Let's talk about the weather. It snows here.

Furthermore, I believe that The Thread™ should be killed.

It rained here today. I got wet. I hate being wet. I cursed the troposphere. I blame precipitation on the poor.

I am watching TV right now when an advert for Simon the Sorcerer comes up. At one point they say "The Adventure Game for you PC!", and I shout, shocked "No, not Adventure", thinking they said "Action Game", as Simon seems to have been jumping at the time. So I quickly say "Err, I mean: Yes, Adventure!" to counteract all the evil spirits.

Grey Squirrels, epitome of a Yankee; over paid, over sexed, and over here!

STOMP on them I say!

Violence is never the answer.

Unless I'm killing the Thread™, of course.

It may not be the answer, but in the meantime it's a pretty good way to tackle the question.
