What's with you and thosefreaking birds?? Seven swans a swimming. What kind of damn joke is this?There's bird poop all over the house and they never stop the racket. I can'tsleep at night and I'm a nervous wreck. It's not funny. So stop those freakingbirds.

Sincerely, Agnes

O.K. Buster:

I think I prefer the birds.What the hell am I going to do with 8 maids a milking? It's not enough withall those birds and 8 maids a milking, but they had to bring their damn cows. Thereis manure all over the lawn and I can't move in my own house. Just lay off me,smartass.

Hey Shithead:

What are you? Somekind of sadist? Now there's nine pipers playing. And Christ do they play.They've never stopped chasing those maids since they got here yesterday morning.The cows are getting upset and they're stepping all over those screeching birds.What am I going to do? The neighbors have started a petition to evict me.

You'll get yours! Agnes

You rotten prick:

Now there's ten ladiesdancing. I don't know why I call those sluts ladies. They've been balling thosepipers all night long. Now the cows can't sleep and they've got diarrhea. My livingroom is a river of shit. The Commissioner of Buildings has subpoenaed me to givecause why the building shouldn't be condemned.

I'm calling the police on you! Agnes

Listen Fuckhead:

What's with those elevenlords a leaping on those maids and ladies? Some of those broads will never walk again.Those pipers ran through the maids and have been committing sodomy with the cows. Alltwenty-three of the birds are dead. They've been trampled to death in the orgy.I hope you're satisfied, you rotten vicious swine.

Your sworn enemy, Agnes
