Pigeons Are Like People, Says Mike Tyson
I think this is old news, but in case you were wondering if Mike Tyson is crazy, he had a reality show about pigeons. He is quoted as saying “The first thing I ever loved in my life-the pigeon, they’re so much like people.” I don’t know what people Mike Tyson hangs out with, but most people I know don’t get in a large group and take a giant dump on my car. I mean, sure, some people do but that’s just due to an extreme case of road rage.
Tyson participates in pigeon races, which is apparently a thing. When talking about racing pigeons, he says what may be my new favorite sentence, “We’re dealing with the creme de la creme of the pigeon world.” He even has a pigeon trainer and spends hours a day staring at the pigeons in order to pick which dominant pigeons should mate.
Hey, if he wants to race pigeons, who am I to judge? I thought face tattoos were crazy but now many people including myself have them. Lastly, since when does Mike Tyson dress like Jack Nicholson’s Randle McMurphy from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest? Maybe it’s a reference to how Tyson has taken so many blows to the head, he’s like the lobotomized McMurphy?
