You Lucky Dog!: Bird Gets His Own Steerable Buggy
Because flying takes energy and now even the birds are getting lazy (or he has his wings clipped), here's a video of Pepper the African Grey cruising around on the Bird Buggy, a little car he can control with his beak. The buggy was built by the bird's engineer owner to keep him busy (and quiet) during the day and features sensors to prevent Pepper from ramming himself into walls (I love doing that) and a webcam that allows the buggy to locate its docking station. Personally, I would fly everywhere if I could. Just spread my wings and soar, you know? "You would fly straight into a bay window and break your neck." Hell yeah -- SCAR SOME KIDS FOR LIFE.

Thanks to my brother SuperFrank, who was clearly dipped out of a deeper end of the gene pool than I was. "You were dipped out of a filter." DAMMIT FRANK. The truth hurts.
