Some ten years ago I visited San Francisco with my family, and during a tea break at the Japanese Tea Garden my Aunt cracked her fortune cookie and read "you have a magnetic personality" and then a bird pooped on her.

So the joke from then on was if you had a fortune saying how likable you were, you should probably duck and cover. So when we went back last week for a tea break and Uncle Bill pulled this gem,
Small Brother and I looked from one another to the pigeon sitting on the eaves and laughed til tea came out our nose.

Uncle Bill made it out unscathed.

Has your Uncle Bill checked the hard drive on his computer - magnetic personalities (especially those "unusual" kinds) might have untoward effects.

Glad the pigeons held their fire!

I hope Uncle Bill is aware of what may be coming and is taking appropriate precautions.
