WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Security is tight in front of the White House for a new resident -- a Mallard hen sitting on nine eggs she laid at the foot of a sapling over the weekend.

The mother duck chose for her nest a fresh heap of mulch on the sidewalk outside the heavily guarded entrance of the Treasury Department, next door to the presidential residence.

Secret Service officers have erected metal stanchions around the tree to shield the incubating bird from passersby on the crowded pedestrian plaza in the heart of the U.S. capital.

At least the birds are being treated nicely, can't say the same for the Iraqis...

Yes, but the birds are American citizens and therefore they must be protected...

So who do they vote for, if they're American citizens? :rolleyes:

I wonder who ordered the bird protected. Bush? One of his lackeys?

Festering Chantor

I bet they all voted for Bush back in 2000...

Eldacar
09-04-2005, 12:34
And maybe this is just a political campaign so Bush can secure the votes of all the birds of America for the next election...

Americans... :p

You're dropping you're game a little arxhon. If you want I could give you a link to a guy that was killed over a sword in an online rpg. :p

Edit: Maybe the iraqi's posed more of a threat? :rolleyes:

The civilian ones? The little kid who lost all his limbs?

Yeah... :rolleyes:

[Ponders how many nesting birds were killed in bombings.]

If you dont have the common sense to see what I meant then you're just being flame bait, so drop it.

Calm down people...You're starting a flame war over an article about Mallard ducks. :rolleyes:

I agree with Samoth. Your standards are dropping arxhon.

Can someone work up a joke about "A bird in the hand is worth two in the Bush"?

God no. Please.

So you should. :p
