WTF Fun Fact – Woo By Diving

  1. I love birds, especially chickadees and hummingbirds and eagles. But my first thought was why did God make so many male animals go through elaborate “dances” to attract the females heart when so many modern male humans seem to think all they need to do is put on a pair of tight jeans? That’s why women are getting married later and there is a serious shortage of nerds.
    Second thought: Protect our wild birds. Fight for them!
