The Poop-o-logy

“Be like a bird. Expand your wings and learn new things.”

Let’s begin with the main question first, is bird poop good luck?

Surprisingly, it is good luck to get a bird pooped on you.

While there are uncountable birds in the sky, it is said that getting bird poop on you is very rare, as rare as winning a lottery.

So basically, getting a bird’s poop on you is like winning a lottery ticket, a ticket that will bring you good luck.

You weren’t expecting this answer, were you?

But why is it considered good luck?

The moment we get ready, step outside our house and see a bird nearby, all we think about is what if that bird will poop on our clothes, our head or on our car, isn’t it?

But now when you know about this superstition about bird poop, what are your thoughts on it?

Do you know how this superstition justifies this act of birds pooping on humans and calling it a sign of good luck.

It is believed that birds cannot sit and poop like the other land animals and humans and so that have to poop while they are flying high in the skies spreading their wings.

In this manner, not only they can apologise for their actions but people will tend to hate their pooping habits a little less after finding out that these poops are actually a blessing in disguise.

How amazing is that!
