been occasionally playing a "draw something" type game with the irish mate while we're all locked down and today he spazzed out about the phrase...
i never realized how strange they are but he'd never heard of them, and was like "what kind of rich bougie shit is this, who builds a swimming pool for birds?!"
it was a five minute rant, hilarious and fully justified... i never really thought about it but i mean... what kind of rich bougie shit IS this? why was this so popular in the south?
@robey aren't birds slang for women there, too?
@robey Growing up we had em and multiple bird feeders so we could see the birds close up without having to leave the house.
