The Virginian-Pilot ^ | 7/18/06 | AARON APPLEGATE

SUFFOLK - A naked man clutching a pigeon was arrested over the weekend after beating the bird against a car.

Two Whaleyville residents had just pulled into their driveway Friday night when Juan Lopez, 30, of Kellam Road in Virginia Beach came up and repeatedly pounded the pigeon on the car, police said. The people got out of the car and went to a neighbor's house, where they called the police.

The understatement of the day.

Maybe nude pigeon pounding is a regular practice where he comes from.

Haven't you guys heard about this new sport? It's been introduced by the international soccer cartel because soccer is so unpopular in this country. They're just trying to tap into the American sports market.

It goes for fourteen chukkers or 72 birds, whichever comes first. A penalty means you have to take back one hit. And the rule book says you don't even want to KNOW what THAT means.

Choking your chicken is one thing, but beating your pigeon is quite beyond the pale.

Indeed. Let's not be so culturally insensitive and Eurocentric.

Police discovered that Lopez had destroyed two of the homeowners' bird cages, freeing 15 small chickens and four pigeons. He killed four birds, George said.

He's charged with burglary, destruction of property, and larceny of poultry.

"Larceny of poultry"? There's a specific statute to cover that?

(Well, that's a little misleading. He flailed the car with the pigeon, not with the ping.)

So there are two separate ping lists - one for "Naked Man Flails Car With Stolen Pigeon" and another for "Naked Man Flails Car With Stolen Pigeon Ping"?

I hope I am on both.

Well, it's like my granpa always told me:

Or something like that.

Could any one determine if the pigeon was an illegal alien? Did it have a green card? Did it habla Espanol? Or, if it truly were an eagle and not a pigeon, a sick one, was it an ... no, no, no, Fro, we ain't goin' there!
