But alas, here we are. The internet doing what it does best: creating humorous chaos from nothing. We're ready for the album at this point.

They're clearly planning world domination. Never underestimate a couple ducks that are having a passionate conversation with one another.

Sure, most birds will wait for bread to fall and just eat it off the ground like the filthy animals they are. But this one had a decidedly more spectacular way of doing things, a method that requires much better bird-eye coordination. With interception skills like that it could play for the Ravens.

Twitter Thread: The World's Most Ridiculous Bird Names

This fun Twitter thread from @Stu_Bot3000 runs a quick study on some of the world's silliest bird names. Suffice to say, we had no idea there were these kinds of bird names running amok out there. It's as if some of the folks in charge of naming these birds have some sort of vendetta against birds, because some of these names are just brutal.

Clearly, our socially aggressive Raven is bombarding the majestic snowy owl that could easily be mistaken for Hedwig, about Harry Potter's whereabouts. Some birds just refuse to take a hint. Maybe the Raven homie was lonely out there in the bitter cold.

The poor hawk got stuck on this dude's porch, and after he wasn't able to shoo it away, he naturally just decided to pick up the beast with his bare hands. Can't say that this would be the typical approach to such a life development, but here we are.

Even penguins are out there failing and getting a little mixed up every now and again. This particular penguin homie decides to waddle on off with the wrong group, and we get to watch his bud try to retrieve him. Pretty adorable stuff right here.

That Capercaillie looks so much like a dang Pokémon we really thought this was some Pokémon GO trickery for a hot second. Seriously, can't imagine what would be racing through one's mind if you were out skiing, enjoying the wintry scenery, and then came across this bad boy. Wow.

Maybe, just maybe, we live in a weird world where this is where the Apple ringtone took its roots. Some dude heard an angry Cockatiel rapping off some angry musings and they just so happened to be catchy and worthy of being the iconic Apple ringtone. Who knows? Either way, this is honestly strangely adorable.

Tumblr Users Trade Unconfirmed Facts About Soda And Carrier Pigeons

Nothing fills our hearts with joy and appreciation like a couple Tumblr users swapping knowledge about the history of soda and carrier pigeons in a totally random Tumblr thread. But hey, that's what Tumblr is all about. Can't say that we knew that drinking Pepsi cold and Coke warm would result in them tasting the same. Is that real life?

The multiple angles are what makes it here. Once those birds in the distance notice this person walking around, they straight charge with no regard for politeness or decency. Who knows if they'll have trouble getting packages delivered to their door in the future.

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

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.

Now this is what it's all about. Who knows what that bird wanted from that kid, but boy it wanted it bad. Pained screaming and utter freakout aside, props to that kid for staying on his scooter.

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.
