Odd News: Pigeons and Pizza

Stan Freberg here with some odd news items about pigeons and pizza--oh, they're not in the same story. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. First of all, how much pizza do you think Americans eat? Well, we eat 192 million slices of pizza a week, or roughly a million slices an hour. Who is it that measures this stuff?

And here's a story out of France. Thousands of prize-winning homing pigeons become lost every year. And one time, 5000 racing pigeons were released from Nevers, France for what should have been a 14-hour flight back home to England. A month later, many of the birds still had not arrived.

Since the pigeons use the Earth's magnetic field to navigate, experts suspect the lost birds were foiled by flying over microwave ovens!

Well, the pigeons will just have to make sure their flight plan is over non-microwave houses. Or else they'll have to walk.
