Why DO birds suddenly appear?

From Slate: Why is Will Ferrell Funny?

On the economics of comedy: "After frequently disrobing on Saturday Night Live, streaking in Old School, and taking a couple of tighty-whitey jaunts in Talladega Nights, Ferrell's naked body isn't as thrilling as it was just five years ago." Indeed. (James and I saw Blades of Glory on Friday and it was funny but utterly forgettable. The scene they show in the Slate article, of Ferrell singing the Black Eyed Peas' My Humps, is probably the funniest moment in the movie.)

It's only 1 oclock and I have already written the last 5 blurbs, showered, had lunch, made cupcakes, watched Buffy Vs. Dracula, and done all the dishes. I am on FIRE.
