As I sat under the apple tree
a birdie sent his love to me
and as I wiped it from my eye
I said "thank goodness cows can't fly!

Birds like to poop on my car, especially when it has just been washed.

Maybe they are so impressed by seeing my shiny, cleanly washed card that they spontaneously let it go.

And there aren't trees around the place where I usually park, so they do it in flight!

there are a few possible solutions

1: Paste a poster of Lady Gaga on the roof of your car (i would be scared to go near it )

2: Hire Van der Saar to guard your car (now that he has retired )

3: Install Omni destructo Zap rays equipped Maxi Slota Hypernuclear poop repeller. (read the manual clearly before using )

4: Or just google it, i am sure you will find many solutions .


stupid question right?? yeah thats me..

I find that the Plus version of the Omni destructo Zap rays equipped Maxi Slota Hypernuclear poop repeller is much more effective than the earlier versions for the birds in my area.

Our Glorious Leader trailboss Paul Wheaton might have a different point of view -- for example he might point out the uses of bird poop as fertilizer. You should find some of his non-Java links at the bottom of the page.

Start playing World of Warcraft, a very effective solution. Works for bird pets too, but you need to be pacient, for a week or two, depending how long it can fight starvation.
