What a waste. How about collecting pennies for something that matters.
When people look at you the say "What a Waist" you fat loser.

Great job attacking a young person who is making a difference.

You do so much for the world stuffing Pop Tarts in your face inside your trailer.

My daughter did something very similiar last summer but did not get the same recognition from the News Times. Maybe some of you are familiar with her efforts. It was called the "Pennies for Pigeons" crusade. With the help of numerous pigeon lovers and local pigeon clubs, she raised over $2,300.00 that will be used to breed pigeons that will be released in the local area later this year. I'm sure you have noticed the lack of pigeons that were once so numerous in the downtown area. Thanks to local generosity they will be back.

The new law allowing pet trust funds may apply here. The African Penguin lover amongst us could leave our estates to this excellent cause. If you need help with your estate planning please contact Byrd, Krane, Foxx and Mousse Attorney's At Law.

You are the one with a trailer park mentality, probably a few missing front teeth also. I'm trying to keep the kid from becoming a loser like you. There are far more important things to worry about than penguins. How about collecting pennies for the millions of starving children around the world? Retard.
Oh sorry, your right. Your anonymous attack on a child shows great courage. I am sure that you spend all of your time organizing food drives for the homeless.

Tell your mom you are out of Marshmallow Fluff and she bought the wrong flavor Hot Pockets.

I think we may be missing a real gem of an idea here. Pigeon Toes, is this project still active and where can we donate?

Think about it, what would happen if thousands of pigeons were to inhabit the downtown area. People would have to leave the area to evade the poop bombs. Get my drift???
