It takes a lot to surprise me anymore. I admit I find this situation bizarre, just not surprising. A woman recently made headlines after attempting to carry on a peacock on a United Airlines flight out of Newark, NJ to Los Angeles. What a bird brain idea. 

Don't get me wrong, I am all for people who actually need a support animal. I am not in favor of those who lie about it. I myself am totally afraid of birds, all birds, anything with feathers that flap freak me the eff out! If I was on this particular flight and Dexter the Peacock was allowed to board - I would have exited the plane while screaming "this peacock is a crock!"
