John Oliver Takes on Birds, or “Sky Mice”


John Oliver, whose Emmy winning writing staff was receiving their Creative Arts Emmy trophy last night, left us a little treat on the webternets: a rant against birds, who are flying south for the winter in search of warmer climes. (Do it for us Northeasterners, birdies! We’re all too scared of the Zika virus to go to Miami now!)

To these fowl departing denizens of the air he had one thing to say: “Fuck you, birds!” In the clib helow, he goes after Ostriches, Pelicans, Ostriches and other “shitty sequels to the dinosaurs” — but he has no problem with Penguins. Penguins are cute.
