Swallows - what have they done for us?

#1
Just looking at the rafters of the roof outside and I see there is a nest built there for those flea ridden shite producing birds called the Swallow.

So what I want to know is "Where did they nest before mankind started throwing up houses for them to defecate all over?"

I mean the were / are only so many cliff faces out there. Surely these ungrateful feathered vermin must have had a population surge over the last few hundred years.

Yet the RSPB says they have taken a hammering. How the hell do the RSPB know what the population was back in 1200?

And don’t get me started on the bloody Magpies.

They eat 22000 tons of midges a second, so you have to love them. And eves were first mentioned in the bible which was written before the dinosaurs existed. And that's a fact.

Forget about the nesting kind of swallows, and just Google "Joy Swallows".
She is NSFW, but your troubles will soon be forgotten.

I did as you suggested. But all that came up was this picture. Not entirely sure that's who you mean...

1/10. You require remedial google search.. Go away and try harder.

We've got one on our house, some nosey cunt pointed it out to me when I was putting the bins out.
He informed me that "you used to be able to walk down this street and see them on every house" , "you are very luck to have them nesting there"

And I was thinking you've got too much time on your hands fucko I'll keep my eye out for you.

What do you mean? An African or a European swallow?
It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five pound bird cannot carry a one pound coconut!!!
Remedial Monty Python quotes for you my lad!

A five pound Swallow? Is that oven ready or farm fresh? :police:
