Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

The Birds (1963)

Fisherman in diner: Hell, maybe we're all getting 
a little carried away with this. Admittedly a few birds 
did act strange, but that's no reason to... 
Melanie: I keep telling you, this isn't 'a few birds'! 
These are gulls, crows, swifts...! 
Mrs. Bundy, elderly ornithologist: I have never known 
birds of different species to flock together. 
The very concept is unimaginable. 
Why, if that happened, we wouldn't stand a chance! 
How could we possibly hope to fight them? 

Even though this conversation hits just the right apocalyptic note for today - terrifying terrifying today - I am posting it because it is Tippi Hedren's 87th birthday. We love you, Tippi! Carry us to your great big car with Mitch and drive us away from this horrible place!
