Bird Droppings - The 11th Plague

Ya know how sometimes it feels like everyone's taking a dump on you? Just visit Orlando for the real thing! It seems Orlando is having some issues with a horde of bird droppings. "The problem began when city workers removed cypress trees on 'bird island' at Lake Eola in Orlando. The trees had to be removed because the bird droppings were polluting the water, according to the report. Now, the birds have moved into the city and are covering anything and anyone between Lake Eola and Central Avenue with droppings."

BirdPoopLand is one attraction you'll find in Orlando, but not Disneyworld.

The article also gave way to such glamorous quotes like, " 'I was walking the other day and got pooed on walking under these trees,' Orlando resident Lisa Valentine said." Worst of all is that Orlando can't do anything about the birds because federal law prohibits disturbing any nests.

Signs like this will surely do wonders for tourism.

I'm traveling to Orlando soon; thanks for the 'heads up' warning.

That's so funny, My friend T.Spot just sent me a link to that news website this morning. I once accidently parked under a tree like that. Here I was thinking I was all lucky that there was an open spot, but there other's already knew what I was about to find out! NOT. GOOD.
