After years of hard work – transforming plastic flamingos into flabongos and drinking beer and the occasional franzia from their beaks – it’s finally official: the flabongo is now the official bird of Madison.  I would like to personally congratulate all those who made this possible, including my brother, roommate Andrew, Chilla the Gorilla, Warren, IIE, The Badger Short Bus, Creepy J, and of course Marsha Rummel – the sponsor of the city council resolution.  I’m relieved that the Madison Common Council members are holding firm to the platforms for which they were each elected.  Now if only the university would let me take FAC for credit.

  2. This is truly a glorious day for Madison and it’s residents. No longer do we have to hold our heads in shame for having no official bird. No longer do we need to hide our love for the wonderful pink bird full of spirit[s]! God bless America!

    In other news, Mayor Dave shit a brick, quite literally.
