How Lucky is Bird Shit?

Superstition states that one bird shitting on you is good luck. However, what if many birds decide to bless you with a gift? What then?


According to the old superstition, if one bird shits on you it’s good luck, but what if a lot of birds do it? Then what? Using the Bill and Ted theory of ‘heinous’, I tried to figure out how good or bad multiple hits of shit would be.

Inspiring this need for clarity was an incident where a large group of pigeons bombed me on the corner of 42nd Street & 8th Avenue recently. Aside from needing to do my laundry earlier than usual that week, I had to see what sorta luck I had in store.

OK. So applying a little Bill & Ted math to the situation; Heinous is bad. Non-heinous is good. Non-non-heinous is really bad. Non-non-non is really good and so on. Now back to the birds. If one bird shitting is good luck, then two birds shitting is bad luck. Three birds … really good. Four … really bad and so on.

Sadly though I never took the time to count the birds on that day, so forget all this.

    I usually associate it with good luck, Maybe it depends on the type of bird as well ? The first two times was a crow, I had luck on my side. Today was a humble pigeon and things went pretty bad.

    @Marcy … Keep that bird around. According to my calculations, an odd number means good luck so one bird is definitely lucky. Plus it seems he really, really wants you to have good luck. Now, if he brings a friend, then you may be in trouble. ;0)
