Then I remembered reading about a plan during World War II to use bats to carry little incendiary devices to burn buildings down, I don't remember exactly which side was thinking about doing this, but it didn't work out very well. They said bats were very difficult to aim, and that is probably true. More likely though, they couldn't get the bats to pick up the small fire bombs, and nobody wanted to pick up the bats and tie on the apparatus, (who can blame them?) because bats are so creepy, almost little flying rats And some people still think bats and vampires are related somehow (plus, I saw a movie one time where bats ate people, maybe they saw it too). So, they just used planes to drop great big bombs, and that seemed to work pretty well, and the bats were happy about it, too.
Then it hit me, maybe this was no ordinary pigeon, or dove (though we are all grateful it was not a napalm armed bat, we voted on that during the morning meeting, and it was unanimous). Maybe this was an NSA pigeon (or dove, is there really a difference?) spying on the water cooler discussions. Sure, they are supposed to cut back on the electronic eavesdropping, but what about good, old fashioned, feet on the ground, or fourth floor window sill espionage.
