Creepy Lumbird was Always Lurking Around

“Hi, Peter. What’s happening? We need to talk about your TPS reports.”

Honestly terrifying, Kelly W.



  1. Big Bird is watching.

  2. I didn’t see the hover text until after I had posted my first comment…GMTA, Prongs.

  3. Wheekie says:

    HaHa! Good Laugh! Never expected that!

  4. Mary (the first) says:

    I’d rather have a budgie watching me than lots of other things/people!

  5. LoLz…. poor bird!

  6. It’s a LITTLE boid, peeps!

  7. Not to take away anything from the bird, but I ran across this site and had to share it. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to get dogs photographed for a catalogue:

  8. LisaHoneychan says:

    WOAH…Is that Budgie a teal/purple combo? Perfectly gorgeous! If so, time for me to look into getting one. *LOL* Love that color combo

    My Great-Grandmother had a little Budgie when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I was enchanted with it. The more I see little boids like this and the Booby-Bird from yesterday, i’m thinking they are awesome pets.

  9. Katrina says:

    Off to rehearsal-have a great day, Peeps!

    Baa-dum, Baa-dum Baa-dum, Baa-dum Baa-dum, Baa-dum….

  10. Of all they ways they could be spying on me at work I’ll take this one!

  11. Saffron says:

    Looks like someone has a bad case of the Mondays.

  12. 260Oakley says:

    Is it appropriate to have Twitter on your desktop at work?

  13. 260Oakley says:

    The Budgie Committee wants to know if you’ve come up with any new sources for seed money.

  14. “Ahh, I’m going to need you to go ahead and come in on Saturday….mmmkay?”

  15. Lerrinus says:

    I always feel like…somebirdy’s wat-ching me! And I have no privacy! 🙂

  16. I was half expecting the head to pop up over those folders 🙂

  17. flutterbye says:

    260Oakley FTW! A double-header, no less!

    LOL Jaws music leading you to expect a BIG something and there stands a cute li’l ‘keet!

  18. no more birds says:

    birds aren’t cute. quit it.

  19. AuntieMame says:

    Birds are adorable. No more gripes. Quit it.

  20. Katiedid says:

    My stapler, I believe you has it…

  21. Katiedid says:

    Birds are cute! Just as cute as puppies or kittens!

  22. Katiedid says:

    260Oakley- Where do you get these puns!? I MUST know! Do you come up with them on your own… or do you own some sort of pun factory?

  23. Andi from NC says:

    The music and the jumpy footage at the end took me out!

  24. I get the canine version of this all the time. While I love my dogs, I think I prefer the avian example.

  25. Rachael says:

    I looked in the dictionary under the word “pundit” and sure enough, 260’s picture was there. Who knew??

    Fern, I love that site!

  26. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    Hmmmm….I’m torn btw several possibilities….oh heck it’s Saturday I’ll just unpack ALL of ’em ….

    1) ….um, Prongs….not to be cheeky, but ya gotta recomember that here on CO there dwell quite a few librariologist and litterachuwa-type personnages….unless I’m simply missing the clever point (ALWAYS a possibility, mind you …) it seems to me that in my memoire, Orwell’s instrument of ominousness (?) was actually a Big BRUDDER, not actually Big BOID. but I’m generally outside the Clever References Nightclub, so whaddoIknow?

    2) So far, no one has made the OBLIGATORY reference to A. Hitchcock’s The Birds. So I will, thusly:

    ” Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds.”

    Tweet tweet to All and to All a Good Night

  27. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    (grumblegripe moderation gripegrumbleannoyancegrumblegripesufferin’ succotash)

  28. I know it’s not, but I seriously jumped when I saw that bird because it looks JUST like my little newly-hatched (er…last time I saw them, in September, before I moved for a year) baby budgies, Fluffykins and Scrambles! I’ve never seen another ‘keet with that coloration, neato!

    A+ for the camera work, too!

  29. Queen of Dork says:

    Interesting monitor. Nice 3 cut manila file folder as well. Scaaaary, pretty bird. Caturday?

  30. Gretchen says:

    Birds aren’t cute? The hell you say.

  31. @260: and so, I was all looking at the lap top going “What twitter ? I don’t see twitter…oh!” and then I groaned inwardly

  32. Queen of Dork says:

    All this talk about birds reminds me of this…(because of “when happy little bluebirds sing”). Sorry about all the captions. I don’t know how to make them go away.

  33. Queen of Dork says:

    I mean “fly” not sing.

  35. 260Oakley says:

    My one-liners are all homemade, not store bought. As far as I know, there is no pun factory, but I have been thinking of creating a line of pun-theme clothing. Punderwear, anyone?

  36. Hon Glad says:

    A-well-a everybody’s heard about the bird
    B-b-b-bird,bird, bird, b-bird is the word
    A-well-a-bird,bird bird,the bird is the word….
    ad infinitum.

  37. @Gretchen—Agreed! I love his little birdy twitches and tweets! *heart melts*

  38. Queen of Dork says:

    Peeps: I have a question and this is so off the subject but PLEASE HELP!. This horrible excuse for a computer that I have currently is not working for me. It’s terrible and doesn’t work correctly most of the time. I won’t put all out on blast what type it is but would love to know what kind you might suggest I buy because this bloody thing must go. What type of computer (brand) do you recommend? Seriously, please help me with this because I’m at a loss.

  39. Queen of Dork says:

    P.S. – I have to actually completely turn this thing all the way off (like now) between every thing I type or else it gets extremely hot to the touch and then refuses to work at all. AT ALL. So I must sign off for now to let the poor thing cool off as it is already beginning to get too hot to touch. What a rip off no good POS computer I was suckered into buying. I feel like a fool. 😦

  40. type type type type typity typittty typitty. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!

    too cute

  41. Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near??

  42. Queen of Dork says:

    Hi Hon Glad! *me singing to you*

    Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high
    There’s a land that I heard of
    Once in a lullaby

    Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue
    And the dreams that you dare to dream
    Really do come true

    Someday I’ll wish upon a star and
    wake up where the clouds are far
    Behind me

    Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
    Away above the chimney tops
    That’s where you’ll find me

    Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
    Birds fly over the rainbow,
    Why then, oh, why can’t I?

    If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,
    Why, oh, why can’t I?

  43. Queen of Dork says:

    Trixie: like this?

  44. Queen of Dork says:

    R.I.P., Karen.

  45. Exactly like that!

  46. Queen of Dork says:

    Trixie: Yay!

  47. MamaLana says:

    QofD: Toshiba laptop, never disappoints. Also @260Oakley, you never disappoint! I luff you, punny peep.

  48. Queen of Dork says:

    MamaLana: Toshiba, eh? Thanks! My horribleness is D.–L. (I’m trying not to just blast the yuck computer I have. But I’m not having great experiences with this stupid D–L and I would NEVER, ever recommend it to anyone. It sucks.

  49. LOL

    I’d rather have a budgie watch me at work anyday!!

  50. Trixie wins!……best bird reference!

  51. That bird just wants those yummy typing sausages !!

  52. Katiedid says:

    hehehehe….. punderwear… hehehehhe

  53. Methinks she should get her ring resized. Cute birdie. Was hoping he’d be on top of the monitor.

  54. Hon Glad says:

    QoD – Thank you for that rendition. Help yourself to some flowers from your vast repository.

  55. Queen of Dork – get thee to an Apple store and buy anything Mac. I have three Macs, including a laptop, and they are so easy to use, they never crash, and no one writes viruses for Macs. LOL!

  56. A. Ok, that’s just silly.
    2. I never realized budgies = parakeets
    3. Had to look up GMTA on
    4. Carpenters earworm!! Aaaaiiieeeee! The most insidious kind!

  57. Ur fingers are fat so you must be scary.
