Sing Song, Ching Chong, Ding Dong - Damn! II

This dummy doesn't understand the difference between "the pursuit of happiness" and trying to hand it out - or, apparently, anything else:
It may sound like a bird-brained idea, but the mayor of Lancaster wants to brighten up the Mojave Desert city by broadcasting recorded bird songs.

R. Rex Parris proposed the idea during his State of the City talk on Monday.

The Antelope Valley Press says Parris wants to play the bird chatter from loudspeakers on Lancaster Boulevard. The mayor says there’s science to show that listening to birdsong makes people happier.

On other topics, the mayor says Lancaster must continue its drive to become a research capital for solar and alternative energy.

Parris is known for his flamboyant ideas. He got a law passed giving the city the right to castrate pit bulls, ordered city officials to learn Mandarin in a bid to woo Chinese business, and riled some people by saying he was growing Lancaster into a Christian community.
This guy is really for the birds! Get him outta here! What is wrong with California, people?

Oh yea - the California people.


  1. Gosh, there is a lot of useful material here!

  2. Welcome new students. Children will be nervous and so will parents, so be prepared for dealing with both. Have some extra stuffed animals on hand to console students the first week or so if they miss their parents. Thanks for sharing.
