MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A new movement is accusing politicians of spreading lies through tweets — literally.
This month, a billboard that reads “Birds Aren’t Real” went up on the Highland Strip near the University of Memphis. According to one Memphis man, it’s part of a movement to educate people on a mass government surveillance program that replaced birds with drones.
That may sound like a joke to some, but don’t tell that to Peter McIndoe.
This Big Brother (or would it be Big Bird?) theory is that beginning in 1959, the United States government started killing off all birds in the country while simultaneously replacing them with identical, undercover surveillance drones — what we now call “birds.”
