Thespians

Whitey, The Bard was casting for his Summer Theater in the Park to be staged in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  He looked up when a voice asked if he was seeking experienced thespians.  The funny looking polka dotted stranger had a foreign accent but could sure spout lines from Shakespear and assured W that he had a vast repertoire that he could call upon at will; casually mentioning the name of repertory theater that sounded vaguely familiar.  the Face of Everyman tried to signal The Bard that this fellow would be more trouble than he was worth.  In the end, the stranger flew off.  Peace and good fellowship once again reigned over this magical setting.

Shame

The DNA evidence was clear.  The unnatural coupling of a European Starling and a Brown-headed Cowbird had produced a grotesque  offspring. The Mom’s Father was fit to be tied.  Renaldo hung his head; his command of English was poor but he understood every word of the diatribe.  There seemed no solution but to notify the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Office of Health and Avian Services and place the fledgling up for adoption.
