The Chavinch, of course:

You ought to start a new website - Pimp My Finch.

I thought that Jade Goody [slapper vulgaris] was the commonest bird in Britain...?

John Hague said...

Surely it's Danielle Lloyd, Jade's just the thickest twat on the planet?

Earl Gray or Dave for short! said...

Maybe I've got the wrong end of the stick, but I thought Robin big breasts was the commonest bird in Britain?! ;-)

beast said...

John..you could be right..Jade might have the thickest 'twat' on the planet..don't really want to go down there unless armed with a machete and crab repellent...or have I deliberately got the wrong end of the stick here?!
[Andy..if you had to start this filthy finch website you could have at least had the indecency to start with 'whorefinch']!

Ain't nuff bling on da pins innit

Andy Mackay said...

I know - I couldn't be arsed. I haven't got that much time on my hands!

Harry said...

Isn't this just all copying Stephen Menzie's 'Stonechav' pic from Smurfbirds a while back...?

Andy Mackay said...

Er - no, because I've never heard of 'Smurfbirds'.

Andy Mackay said...

Or do you actually mean Surfbirds perhaps? If so, no, I didn't see that, as I rarely look at it. Once you've seen one piss-poor digiscoped record shot of a Rose-coloured Starling that some sad bastard's twitched and feels the need to share with the world, you've seen them all really.

You don't seriously think I'd just copy something I'd seen on Surfbirds do you?

beast said...

Andy..checked out 'smurfbirds'...it was full of naked blue women...
not really..unfortunately..that might have been weirdly amusing! Tried really hard to find Stonechav picture for about 10 seconds but reckon its flown..[basically got bored trawling thru yet another bird diary site..got better things to do like writing crap into the 'llama's]!

Andy Mackay said...

The 'Stonechav' is still on Surfbirds, if you search the Common Bird photos archive. It was in May 2005.

I apologise profusely for inadvertently having a similar idea to one that someone else had 3 years ago, and I promise that in future I'll thoroughly check every single page of every website, book, magazine, play, film, TV & radio script that's ever existed before posting anything else. I may be some time...

Yeah, quite right too...

Having recently been elected legal representative and spokesperson for every living thing on and off the planet [apart from humans], I can deliver this message on behalf of two new clients. The Chaffinch in the photo has been in touch and says he's upset about being compared to a Stonechat. My client will be seeking compensation but, I'm lead to believe, will accept peanuts..
I've also had words with the Stonechat but he is reluctant to make public his thoughts on the matter. He requests that all interested parties ring his 'chat-line'number..0898...666...all calls will be charged at an inflated rate.
In conclusion, both birds said that they were happy with their photos but that the 'clothing' made them look fat...
[p.s...hello Mr.Menzie...had another look at yer blog...I see you've got good taste in music]!
