Today, I found out that my mother is extremely emotional when it comes to animal deaths when a bird flew into the window and died, and she insisted we have a funeral. FML

Looks like op's mom wanted to have a funeral on the fly.

This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!

Oh Monty Python... where would I be without you?

Did the bird die instantly? If not, OP could have given it some "Tweetment".


Funny, only 1 or 2 of these comments are actually responding to my post. I hate people who reply to the first comment to get up top.

They replied with puns, get over yourself.


So puns make breaking the website rules alright? mymy. Didn't know that. You sir, are a moron.

Marcella1016 31

No one jacked your thread. Your post was a pun. Others replied with puns. It happens often. YOU, sir, are a moron, and on a related note, I am not a sir. Marcella is a female name, and my profile says "Miss." Again, get over yourself.

lol shamus you just got shit on by a chick


I'm sorry, I don't check profiles before I speak. MISS Marcella. And no, it wasn't a pun. It was a reference to a famous movie. You, ma'am, are a dumb bitch.

Woah, can you say no class? No respect for women. Like get out of here. Let me guess... no girlfriend? shocker...

Has your mother not seen this much before? I can't imagine having to burry every animal I've killed before. Not that I'm a soulless bastard, but they occasionally hit my cars windscreen.


I saw where you made a stupid comment, trying for first! Allow me to strike a blow for truth and dignity!! Here is the original comment posted as #2: "At least she has a heart!" What has this world come to..?

Pigeon was born in blah blah blah... He was a great bird. Blah blah blah... He had 17 kids in his lifetime. He will always be loved.

18 kids or 16. Pigeons always lay two eggs. One is male one is female. The more you know!!!! :)

Sound like The Office episode

111, are you some pigeon expert? I picked 17 because 1 and 7 are my favorite numbers. 71 sounded like too many.

Your name plus your comment... Is amusing me

This is normal in my family... if a bird dies by our house, we'll bury it. No speeches or moment of silence, but I just think it's a nice thing to do. Birds are just as alive as humans and their deaths being treated as anything other than paramount to a human's is incredibly egotistical. Yes, they don't contribute anything to human society, but we contribute nothing to theirs either. Living separately doesn't constitute completely disregarding the value of all life.

I'm vegetarian, so I somewhat understand. It's not that strange =)

Being sad is fine. However, a funeral seems like it's a little overboard.

Get your mum a Pokemon game, catch her a wurmple. Then she can look after it and it won't die.

Are you kidding me? Get a god-damn Magikarp, don't evolve it and it will never die. It is the cutest **** you will ever meet.

Yep. Entei, Suicune, Raikou (Reincarnatlted by Ho-Oh.), Darkrai, Marowak (Gen. 1), were shown or mentioned dying, or died.

Hell, it's mentioned somewhere in the Gen. 1 & 2 games that Team Rocket actually kill pokemon.

Gen. 1, Pokémon Tower, I believe. Something about Fuji being angry over Team Rocket killing a Marowak that was defending its Cubone.

Don't forget that Pokemon Tower is a cemetery for pokemon. I think I should stop.

awww but just have a little gathering in the backyard and get on with your life. :) thats so touching of your mom to be so caring about animals. imagine how compassionate she ust be about people ^^

It's been my experience that people who care that much for animals don't care for people at all. I'm not saying it's wrong, just a social preference.

That's whatI do .I found a bird when I nearly home for walking my dog.Once home I let my dog inside then went back for the bird .and buried with a circle of rocks and leaves and I was sort of crying I've done the same with my fish or fish I see at the beach. I do care for people but more family,friends and animals.But on movies I don't cry for the person unless there one of my Fav characters But with animals I would/will cry. If it came down to a Hobo or a stray I would rather let the stray in etc..

I could understand a family pet, but a stray bird? Really? On the bright side, Atleast your mom has a heart...

Nah, not necessarily, Hitler liked animals but he was quite heartless.

Hitler killed animals. The mom didn't kill animals. Hitler was heartless. Mom might have a heart. Your statement does not work!

I'm pretty sure we all have hearts. We would be dead without hearts.

At least she didn't cook it and secretly feed it to you. I bet it would taste real gamie. Or how ever you spell that.

DON'T STEP ON THAT ANT HILL! Seriously, you'll be having funerals for the next 30 years.

Be careful with the funeral music. "Bye, Bye, Birdie" would not be funny or appropriate. Stop laughing!

olpally 32

LOL... oops I laughed... Do I get a cookie?? :D

olpally 32

Even better noor!! Thanks a bunch! Om nom nom!!! :D

"Don't you know about the bird?? Well, everyone's heard about the bird Bird, bird, bird is the word. Bird, bird, bird is the word. Bird, bird, bird is the word."

perdix 29

"Who Killed **** Robin?" Not on the list. Stop laughing! I'm serious -- a bird has died. Died!

twisted_cherub 14

I'm reminded of the scene from "Death at a Funeral" (the original British one) where Simon (Alan Tudyk) keeps giggling during the eulogy. All your fault, Perdix. No more bird songs. It's moving! I saw it move! Someone help me! That bird is alive in the casket!

#71, I missed that, but go look up the old "Mary Tyler Moore Show" and the episode called "Chuckles Bites The Dust." Now, there's a funeral scene!

48 Suuuurrrfiiinngggg biiiirrrd bbbbbbbb (tripping out) Pa Pa Pa oh mow mow mow papa oh mow mow mow papa oh mow mow mow papa oh mow mow mow papa oh mow mow mow papa oh Mow mow mow papa oh mow mow mow!!!

twisted_cherub 14

I'll do that. The original of "Death at a Funeral" was much better than the U.S. remake. Alan Tudyk did well. I actually watched it because of him. I liked him on "Firefly" & "Serenity".
