“@HuffPostGreen: Drunk owl taken in by police” Will we see his mugshot at @hungoverowls?less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

As far as I'm concerned, this is a complete non-story. Owls are drunk? What next, reports that the sun rises in East? That the tide came in?

If you ask me, the important part of the article is its insistence on repeating the myth about Wallabies getting high on opium poppies. I would hardly take one or two anecdotal stories as empirical scientific data showing a regular pattern. Why does the mainstream media insist on persecuting Wallabies?

I'm sure that former governor of Alaska and one-time vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin knows exactly what I'm talking about when I say that this is a blatant case of poppy libel.

Wallabies not under the influence of opium? What are all those red petals outside your door?

If the Phyllis Diller of Wasilla didn't know what you were talking about, she could get one of the kangaroos she has in her top paddock to translate.
