The End of Days (Kind of) Begins in Arkansas

The End of Days began in Arkansas.  Well, not really.  But I can promise you that you will be hearing a lot about this for the rest of the week.  With just 30 minutes to go before midnight in Beebe, Arkansas, something happened to make an estimated 5,000 red-winged blackbirds literally drop dead out of the sky.  Personally, I have a hard time believing that this is signaling the start of Armageddon but these birds could not have picked a worse or more auspicious time to drop dead. 

Is this a creepy way to start of the new year or what?!?!

This mysterious event even caused some Arkansas residents to speak in double negatives.  “I’ve been to Iraq and back and not seen nothing like this” said Jeff Drennan.  About 12-15 Beebe city workers ended up ringing in the new year from 7am to 11am by picking up the dead birds in the one square mile area in Hazmat suits and gas masks which I am sure did nothing to calm the nerves of local Beebe residents and promote the idea that there is nothing to be afraid of. 

Ornithologist Karen Rowe of the Livestock and Poultry Commission Lab and the National Wildlife Health Center Lab in Madison, Wisconsin is examining the birds and said the flock could have been hit by lightning or high-altitude hail, or may have been startled by fireworks.  Whatever the reason Ms. Rowe determines was the cause of death, an event that happened 125 miles away on the Arkansas River near the city of Ozark certainly won’t make people think that this was not the start of the End of Days.

The event I am describing happened just a day a day before the macabre event in Beebe and it also involved another mass death of animals.  This time, however, it was fish.  100,000 Drum Fish along a 20 mile stretch of the river.  Officials don’t know if the events were linked but they do know that the fish did not die from a poison or a pollutant. 

“If it was from a pollutant, it would have affected all of the fish, not just drum fish,” said Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.  Drum fish, which are bottom feeders, are not sought by fishermen, he added, and fishing was not banned as a precaution. “Right now it’s fine to fish.  If you go out there you can still fish for bass and crappie, catfish, it will be fine. Obviously don’t eat the dead fish.”

5,000 Dead Birds + 100,000 Dead Fish = Internet Explosion

Whether this is some fluke occurrence, some badly timed storm, or something other-worldly, I think the only obvious thing here is that something is rotten in the state of Arkansas…and I don’t want to know what it is.



  1. HAHAHA… not sure if you intended this pun or not, but I like it… “Whether this is some FLUKE occurrence”… I mean, you were talkin fish!

    • Wait…are fluke fish?! To be honest, I didn’t even know ‘crappie’ was a fish. I know ‘carp’, but ‘crappie?!?! Come on!!

      • lol, crappie are like bass (pronounced, crop-ee)… and, yup, fluke are fish (like flounder). Creepy though, isn’t it???
