As Cubs fans, it seems like we are always looking for any reason to smile. The other day I was on Facebook, and as anybody who uses that website knows that it frequently recommends links for you. Historically it’s done a pretty poor job guessing who I’d like to connect with, all the way from people I would have never spoken to in high school to just bad ideas or causes in general.
But the other night I was on Facebook enjoying a few Hornsby’s Hard Apple Ciders (Eight is still a few, right?) and I saw a suggestion for a page to “like” called “Wrigley Field Seagulls” and immediately I clicked on it. I have a tendency to link with anything related to the Cubs online as it tends to improve our website traffic. So I clicked like and figured it was one of those Facebook pages such as “Not Being on Fire” that sounds funny at the time but the administrator never really updates…I mean, they’re birds right? They can’t have a whole lot to say…
Boy, was I wrong. As it turns out, whoever is behind this account is hilarious. It’s some of the purest comedy gold I’ve read in a while, and it’s easily deserving of a mention on this website.
Here’s a few samples:
“Note to Selves: Don’t mess with Jay Mariotti’s car if he’s ever in town. Dude has a temper”
“Jim Hendry tried hugging one of us once, too. He had a fork and a knife behind his back. Tricky Bastard…”
“On the bright side, that win is really all Missouri has going for it. The state will still wake up tomorrow as America’s armpit”
“Theriot would make a horrible seagull. He gets caught every time he tries to steal something.”
And my personal favorite:
“It will be nice to have a shot at tagging La Russa today. We tried to get his car during the offseason, but the guy swerves all over the place, especially when he leaves The Olive Garden late at night…What’s up with that?”
Obviously, there’s hundreds more and just about all of them are great. These status updates are merely a sampling of what they’ve posted in just the last couple of days. There are many people who don’t have enough respect for good comedic writing, but nonetheless this is something that any Cubs fan can enjoy. Either way, seagull feces ends up being a crowd pleaser. At least until you get out to your car.
