I’m really late on this one– my spouse has been using this catchphrase for months it seems, and I had no idea where it was from! It’s just the bird zeitgeist, ya know. I am a bird fan (it’s the nickname my spouse calls me) and I’ll admit that I’m huffy about the sudden preponderance of bird merchandise*. That’s the latent hipster in me, I’ll admit.
I didn’t like Portlandia at first, having come back from my first trip there and TOTALLY in love with the town. I gained enough of a sense of humor since then to enjoy it.
*As much as I am irked by the bird stuff, the mustache items make me want to put a turd on it.
