Text: We've gained notoriety and caused much anxiety in the Audubon Society with our games. They call it impiety and lack of propriety and quite a variety of unpleasant names. But it's not against any religion to want to dispose of a pigeon

The author writes:

I have a sneaking suspicion that the Venn diagram for "regular SRoMG readers" and "fans of the works of Tom Lehrer" features some heavy overlap. If there are any mistakes in the transcription, it's because I did it from memory. Garfield is, of course, a proud bird-murderer, so it seemed an appropriate choice.
