it's like a black fly in your chardonnay

According to the ABC Bizarre-chives [thanks, Fark], "the mourning dove -- the brownish and gray bird designated during the Vietnam era as Wisconsin's symbol of peace -- can be hunted like any other wild game, the state Supreme Court ruled Tuesday." As you can see here, the mourning dove bears not a small resemblance to the official bird of NYC, the beloved pigeon. "Gross! Who would want to eat a pigeon?" you may be saying to yourself. Well, after dining at Blue Ribbon, which I very highly recommend, I can attest that pigeons are absolutely delicious. And, symbol of peace or not, I have not had much sympathy for the flying vermin since one dive-bombed me in the back of the head one morning on the way home from crew practice a couple years back.
