Cape Cod Times Headline Of The Year – “Brown Boobies Spotted On Nantucket”

CapeCodOnline.com – In May on the Cape and Islands, bizarre birds from faraway places often will show up and enliven an already lively scene. In this vein comes a report with photos of a couple of mystery birds, sitting on the beach at Great Point on Nantucket last Sunday. A couple was out for a drive down this very scenic area to enjoy the fine weather and see the sights. As they pulled up near the point, there were two very odd looking birds standing on short legs on the beach. Realizing they had never seen anything like these birds before, they managed to get some pretty good photos at close range.

They sent out an email to a friend inquiring about the mystery birds. The birds they photographed on the beach at Great Point on Nantucket on the afternoon of May 4 were adult brown boobies. The immature and adult brown boobies look very different, and most sightings have been of immature birds. Boobies are comical-looking seabirds that live in the Caribbean and up until a few years ago were unheard of in Massachusetts.

This article is pretty much the exact reason we started this website. You just can’t write what you are really thinking when you work in conventional media. How can any human in this day and age write this article without one single joke? It must be absolutely excruciating to not be able to refer to the demographics of Nantucket being 88% white when you mention the rarity of Brown Boobies on the island.

The headline alone is enough, but then the writer throws this sentence in? “The immature and adult brown boobies look very different, and most sightings have been of immature birds.” How do you write that and not say anything about how unbelievably funny it is? Something along the lines of preferring MILFs comes to mind. The possibilities are literally endless.

Call me immature, but if laughing at a bird named the Brown Booby isn’t cool then then you can call me Poindexter.
