The Birds!!!! and Barbie????

It happens every spring time with out fail.  The sky above our backyard suddenly becomes black with swarms of birds.

One minute they are flying around in total chaos and the next minute they instantly synchronize their flight pattern and become one giant bird tornado that rapidly descends upon the trees in the swamp behind our house.  It is the freakiest thing I have ever witnessed.
I have no idea what it is they these birds are up to, but they creep me out.  It reminds me of something out of Alfred Hitchcock's movie,  "The Birds".  Bizarre!

And speaking of bizarre...

Check out the Alfred Hitchcock 45th anniversary commemorative edition of Barbie and The Birds.

No Barbie collection would be complete without one of these beauties. So charming!

What marketing genius thought that this was a good idea? It is just wrong on so many levels.

I love how Barbie is smiling and waving as she gets pecked at by rabid birds.  Smile and wave, Barbie.  Smile and wave.   Or wait, is she swatting at the birds and smiling?  And the perfect hair...Wow!  Barbie refuses to let those pesky birds ruffle her feathers.




  1. I know right? I laughed so hard when I saw this Barbie. I think that there should be other horror movie Barbies. Maybe a Stephen King anniversary edition...Barbie and Cujo?
