STOMPer Alyssa spotted this sporty bird catching the Youth Olympic Games while perched on the lamp post. She also said the bird looked intently from left to right and moves its head when the players miss a ball.
Says this STOMPer:
"This bird was caught sitting on a lamp post while I was waiting for the train in Yio Chu Kang.
"It kept looking right and left at the two mini tennis court. When one of the teams missed the mini tennis ball, the bird will move its head up and down.
"The bird did not fly away when the train came. I am glad that Singaporean birds are also supportive of YOG.
"Next time your train goes by Yio Chu Kang, remember to check out this cute bird. It sits there once in awhile."
And in other news, a feral pigeon (Columba livia) took a crap on someone's head.
In the first place, the inaugural Youth Olympic Games will take place only in August. What sort of fool looks at a casual tennis game and declares it to be a part of the Youth Olympic Games? I might as well point at the teenagers playing soccer at the school field near my house, and say that the match is part of the World Cup.
I once thought this post was one of the dumbest posts I'd ever seen on STOMP, but this one is a serious contender.
ED: Just noticed that the idiot who posted about the myna on the MRT track also went by the name of Alyssa. Should I be happy that such brain-numbing inanity appears to be limited to just one person?
