Pity Dan Silverman, the man behind uber-blog Prince of Petworth. He’s on his game, trying to build a new city out here for everybody and give them their afternoon animal fix along the way. But he’s stuck explaining the world to this joker, who sends in a picture of birds flocking and asks what they’re doing. It must have been tempting to point out that the seasons are changing, and birds like to go where it’s not freezing, and did this guy graduate from elementary school?

“Any amateur ornithologists out there?” he writes instead.

Another question answered, another man-child satisfied. What the Helen of Troy indeed.
