Pigeon Poops On Lawmaker Who’s Talking About Pigeons Pooping
I believe we found this story in our "God Must Have A Sense Of Humor" department.
Or, it may have come from our "So, You're Not Sure What Irony Is" people, I'm not quite sure.
Nonetheless, you've got a Chicago-area lawmaker, Democratic state Rep. Jaime Andrade, talking to a reporter about the problems a CTA station nicknamed "Pigeon Poop Station" has been having with overly-regular pigeons when a member of the avian community decided it was time to drop a bomb on the proceedings.
WBBM-TV reports that one of the birds did its business on the head of Democratic state Rep. Jaime Andrade as he was discussing the problem with a reporter outside of the Irving Park Blue Line station.
During the interview, Andrade rubbed the top of his head and said, "I think they just got me." They did.
The sidewalks outside of the station are covered in bird waste and feathers.
Andrade has been trying to fix the problem. One of his ideas is to ask the CTA to install a hose line for power washing when it constructs new escalators at the stop.
