Oddie Priorities

by Charles Pooter

That Bill Oddie was on TV again last night getting angry about people's misconceptions regarding sparrow-hawks and ranting about the public's prejudice against seagulls. The US may be about to attack Iran, and Russia is buzzing our coastline with bombers. Priorities Bill, priorites!

Oddie: Wrong priorities.

Also, did my grandfathers fight the Nazis and try to build a better world just for sodding ducks to be the highlight of it?

What about parakeets? Or is Oddie himself a Nazi and therefore unable to honor an immigrant bird?

Charles Pooter said...

Indeed. In fact, on the programme, he clearly had it in for the Canada gease and peacocks. "Swarthy" was the word I think he used.

Yeah, but.....

Boddie obviously regards all that world politics stuff as someone else's job and nothing to do with him.

Personally I've always had a soft spot for Bill's complete indifference to World events and his fervent belief that if we all cared a bit more about the doormouse the World would be a better place. It's had to argue with, really.

Pritchard:

Where would we be in Churchill had spent all his time looking at sticklebacks? Singing Deutschland ├╝ber alles, that's where! But maybe, just maybe, that's what Oddie wants..

It ain't just Oddie either, I have my doubts about Packham too... with his aryan looks. Nutkins however is beyond reproach.

Ah but the assumption is that we wouldn’t have required the alcoholic plagiarising Kurd murderer because the Germans wouldn’t have gone on their mission to find room for an extension (annex, geddit?) because they would have been too busy studying their flora and fauna and commenting on how lovely it all was.

Charles Pooter said...

Do the Germans currently have their own version of B.Oddie I wonder? Are there any German readers who know the answer(obviously ones who haven't been offended by my casual stereotyping)?

What I want to know is: Why is Boddie so damn SEXY???!!!
