It is Nigel's narcissism that forces him to be patient for sure.

For some reason (likely a good one) I find myself skeptical that there is such a Law. Then again, we are talking about Nigel the Great and his wants and needs here, correct? I would place a small bag of high-end Pellets on the table that the 'Law' has his claw prints on it!

Re: The life and times of Nigel the Great

Nigel's choices in receiving bribes are specific: nutriberries (a delicacy out here only comes by way of visitors from abroad), birdie bread made with organic fruits and vegetables, served, of course, by his favorite eclectus girlfriend from RBs crew.

Yeah, she apparently knows how to make a proper appearance, but behind closed doors, I have it on good authority that she "noes how to partty".

Re: The life and times of Nigel the Great

Meanwhile, Nigel's messengers have been intercepted by an enemy of unknown origin. It is unknown whether or not the messages, all of questionable intent, actually were decoded.

The pigeons always go where the breadcrumbs are best.

Re: The life and times of Nigel the Great

I realize now that "PM" actually stands for "Pigeon Messages"...

Waiting with bated breath to see if Nigel's bread crumbs were enough to keep the pigeons silent...

Thank you for not saying "baited breath" which is right up there with the misplaced apostrophe in the Pet Peeve Pantheon.

Re: The life and times of Nigel the Great

The Rb is a grammar career-criminal.
So's my ol' man.

I'm re-thinking some of my life choices right now.
