Reply Will P. says: May 30, 2015 at 09:38 Post establishment of the Carrier Pigeon’s Union(CPU). For hundreds of years carrier pigeons were forced to deliver messages over several miles over through dangerous territory. This caused many of the pigeons to suffer from winged tendinitis or “flyers elbow”, a minor condition caused by the inflammation of the tendons in the wing from excessive flight time. In the fall of 1943 the pigeons went on strike and formed the CPU, demanding safer less physically strenuous transportation and wages of at least 15 seeds an hour. After communication lines were all but shut down, the army decided to give into thier demands for safer transportation and established the Canine Carrier Division(CCD). While the 15 seeds an hour were never granted to the CPU, the pigeons went back to work transporting messages with the CCD transport. The CPU has all but collapsed since then, a majority of the pigeons died after the inception of the CCD due to diabetes, heart disease, and strokes caused by the rampant obesity crisis that followed. “And that is the rest of the story. Goodnight” Reply David says: May 30, 2015 at 13:07 (Fido ponders the immortal lyrics of Bob Dylan) Come you masters of war You that build all the guns You that build the death planes You that build the big bombs You that hide behind walls You that hide behind desks I just want you to know I can see through your masks Reply Lance Saint Paul says: May 30, 2015 at 14:57 !!!
