Homey Pigeon Shares his Best Crime-Fighting Tips:
“Hello, PIGS! My name is Homey Pigeon.”
“Don’t worry, I’m not actually calling you a pig. PIG is just short for PIGeon!”
“I’m part of a crime-fighting squad called REAL PIGEONS. Because we don’t just peck and coo and poo. REAL PIGEONS fight crime!”
“Now PIG, I’m going to share my top five crime-fighting tips with you. Just in case YOU need to fight crime one day.”
“Tip number one: find a breadcrumb.”
“This breadcrumb fell from the sky when a human walked past me. I caught it. And hugged it. Everyone should hug the food they love.”
“Tip number two for fighting crime: smell your breadcrumb. Smelling is fun. So long as you’re smelling food. And not a nearby cat.”
“Tip number three for fighting crime: eat your breadcrumb.”
“Dif is mah fabrit part!”
“Tip number four for fighting crime: burp your breadcrumb back out.”
“A burp is basically a food ghost. It hangs around and reminds you of what you just ate.”
“Tip number five for fighting crime: eat your burp.”
“The breadcrumb flavor won’t be as strong. But it will still be breadcrumb-flavored. And that’s all that matters.”
“You have now successfully eaten a breadcrumb! I can never fight crime with an empty tummy. That’s why ALL my crime-fighting tips are about eating.”
“And now, it’s time to find the other REAL PIGEONS so I can fight crime with them. But first I’m going to visit a bakery. Because I just realized something.”
“If eating one breadcrumb helps me fight crime … imagine how awesome I’ll be if I eat TWO breadcrumbs.”
