• Welcome return of the clucks

Welcome return of the clucks

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened the paper and saw on page one an ever-so-important article about a bunch of clucks with nothing better to do than stand on a hill over looking Kealia “welcoming whales.”

They’re pictured blowing pu shells. Have these people no shame or no hobbies or no charitable work that could have been accomplished … let alone anything constructive having to do with bettering themselves or their family’s position during this tremendous waste of time?

Not a single bag on their heads to shield them from the camera! I know of no one that has that kind of time to waste. Surely something of importance is being neglected by the participants of this goofy event. Right?

Just what is the blowing of a silly shell doing? Or supposed to do or represent? Other than making an obnoxious noise, thankfully only heard by the other slackers attending this tremendous event?

With all that is going on in this world and all that could be done to make things better for themselves or someone else in need, it’s just so selfish of these people to blow a shell and clap when a whale comes up for air! Ridiculous to be sure. I strongly suspect these whales indeed communicate with one another. They have been talking about and awaiting the return of the clucks all year!
