Plastic Pink Flamingo: Official Madison WI Bird!

I thought this was a joke, but seriously? The city of Madison, Wisconsin has named its official bird the Plastic Pink Flamingo. That is so 60's cheesy and somewhat WalMart-cheap like. Oh well, I guess it goes with the economy and forthcoming extinction of so many birds. As long as we've got China, we'll be seeing these Pink Flamingos manufactured oh so cheaply for generations to come.

"The new mascot was debated for five minutes, and then the Common Council voted 15-4 to make the plastic pink flamingo the official city bird."

Others weren't too happy with this:

""I respectfully ask for this City Council to devote more time to more serious business at hand," said Alder Thuy Pham-Remmele, of District 20."
