Ah'm Your Huckleberry: Birds Take Flight

A fiftysomething Berry Picker had the misfortune of waiting for a red light at Fourth & Appleway, eastbound, behind a late-teen couple we'll call Bonnie and Clod. Seems the two blond horndogs in a white convertible with the top down were deep into the second period of a tonsil hockey game when the light turned green Sunday afternoon. They were so engrossed in exchanging spit that they didn't notice. The Berry Picker finally honked her horn five seconds into the light change, only to get a nasty look and the finger from Clod. Midway across the intersection, his sweetie -- mebbe we should have called her Little Miss Soon-To-Be-An-Unwed Mother -- got into the act by flipping off the Berry Picker. But that wasn't the end of it. As Clod turned the corner from Best Avenue onto Ninth, he turned, glared at the Berry Picker one more time, and flipped her off again. Their parents must be proud of what they raised.

Question: When's the last time you've been flipped off in traffic?
