Chicago Cubs Battle Bird Flu And Bird Poo

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A New Jersey-based Company claims it can keep the cheap seats at Wrigley Field from going to the birds, literally.

The Chicago Cubs have hired Bell Environmental Services to install its “patented and revolutionary” Bell Strip as “bird control” to stop a plague of ballpark pigeons from “dumping” on fans.

The secret according to company founder Phil Waldorf is something called a “Bell Strip,” which is a virtually invisible strip of plastic wiring that delivers a mild electrical shock to birds that land on it.

Waldorf insists the strip is humane because no birds are injured or killed and adds, “It works! And they’re not cleaning up bird s for us in China, so we’ll always have jobs.”

Naturally, Waldorf hopes to bring the strip to other ballparks and jokes that it’s probably cheaper than having notorious pigeon-killing pitcher Randy Johnson do the dirty work; plus, he adds, “We’re more sanitary.”
