Is Being Pooped On By A Bird Considered Good Luck?
I know the WH is excellent with their SPIN, but is it true that having a bird Crap on you, is a sign of good luck?

17. They get points from The Master Bird for every person they
dump on. If they nail a lawyer and the Beemer at the same time, Bird of the Month and their own parking space.

4. To a few ethinic groups, it is a sign of luck to get pooped on.

7. some fisherman say that.
I remember a conversation reported to me of a huddle of fisherman who were having a heated debate about something or other.

A seagull pooped on one of them. They all said simultaneously "that's good luck." Then they resumed their conversation.

Yet * is no fisherman really.

Stocked lakes do not qualify really.

19. Yeah. I'm Italian, and family members would say that.
Just the other day, when I was complaining about the avian docorations on my car, my mother mentioned that so-and-so (famiy member) used to say it's good luck.

14. God Almighty could descend from above and grab the jug-eared little prick by the throat ...
while bellowing "WE ARE NOT ON THE SAME SIDE", and Dana Perino would attempt to spin it.

22. It's a sign from an angry God and the collective ILL WILL of
(gag)'his' people.

Down with this frigging tyrant B*. Enough already! Our government was established to rebuke your ilk. GO HOME TO CRAWFORD. GET OUT OF OUR WHITE HOUSE. YOU ARE A FRAUD, A LIAR AND A CHEAT. LEAVE US.
