The Oliebollen Bird

That shot of me sharing an oliebollen at Schipol Airport in Amsterdam from my last post was so popular, I thought I’d treat you to more from the series. These were taken by The Complete Package with his new pocket camera. Turns out it has a really cool rapid-capture sports mode that captured our little friend perfectly. So without further ado, I give you The Oliebollen Bird.

If you want to have some fun, use your down arrow to scroll through them quickly. It’s like a poor man’s version of a home movie. For even more fun, once you get to the bottom, use your up arrow key to scroll back through them backwards and see the bird fly in reverse. If you listen closely, you can hear the bird say “Paul is dead.” And if you’re too young to get that joke, do me a favor and keep it to yourself {wink}.

  1. Possibly the coolest thing I’ve seen.
    I can’t believe you reenacted that Beauty & The Beast scene in Amsterdam. Brilliant!

    • I need to watch Beauty & the Beast again. I vaguely remember her feeding the birds. Maybe I was subliminally reliving a Disney moment. Wouldn’t be the first time (as an adult). heh heh

    This is the modern flip-book.

    Who knew your feasting feathered friend would be such a sleeper hit with The Internet?

    • I know, right? Well, he was a really cute bird (even though he was a donut-stalker), and TCP’s little pocket camera did a great job of capturing him in flight. My favorite moment, which was sadly not captured on film, was when one of his buddies flew up to my face and tried to steal the donut bite I was putting in my mouth. Now THAT was an aggressive donut stalker!

  3. Bacon Slayer’s comment: She’s like frickin-Snow White. He get’s his Disney princesses confused, which I think is a good thing.
