This video is both frightening and hilarious. It turns out that Australian Magpies are notorious for attacking passers by during parts of the season down under. Protecting their young or some such – I don’t know, you don’t see the fairer species, like humans and dogs, doing this sort of shit. The funny part is the Aussie cyclist repeatedly pleading for his life. If it were me, and it wouldn’t be me because I don’t like to exercise and sweat, I would have smashed the magpie’s face in with my helmet. Then I would have plucked, cleaned, seasoned, cooked and eaten it. The magpie, that is.
