Tumblr Thread: New Zealand's Bird Election Was a Mess

Apparently no election is safe from baseless accusations, mudslinging and questions of voter fraud. The annual election for "Bird of the Year" in New Zealand had a dramatic year and frankly it's refreshing to see people be this hilariously petty over the decision of the best bird. For some other New Zealand drama, here's the time the whole nation was outraged at a single rude family of British tourists. Here are some more random funny tumblr gems to tumblr through.

Guy Feeds Crows, Crows Get Back At Bully Neighbors For Him

This is why you don't mess with crows, or better yet, why it pays off to have some feathered friends in high places. This guy's neighbors sound like they were a real piece of work, and generally unfortunate people to be around. Fortunately, he was able to befriend some crows that would appear to have picked up wind of this, and proceeded to stand up for him. With all the wild stories of people's experiences with intelligent, devilishly clever crows, it's really no big surprise. 

For another glorious tale of petty revenge, check out this story about a sister who always stole their sibling's food, so the sibling took revenge at graduation.

The real question is where on earth did this parrot learn to laugh just like The Joker? Was the bird taught by its owner? That being said, The Joker ain't got sh*t on this bird's maniacal cackle.

Animals that Basically Melted

There are very few beings that are capable of being as relaxed as these melty animals right here. The flaps and wobbly folds of these dogs, birds, and rodents are a marvel to behold; a splendorous foil to the stiff and rigid. These animals are basically puddles, man. For more surprisingly relaxed animals, here are sleepy dogs in goofy positions.

Bird's Nests In Weird Places

Birds don't know or care what they build their nests in or on. It could be a rib cage in a tree, a traffic cone, or even a wreath on a front door. Are these birds rebels or are they just dumb? Let's call it a mix of both. For more organisms that don't seem to care about their surroundings, here are trees that appear to be eating stuff.
