The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was: > Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near? >
And in response, thus spake the Oracle: } Hmm? Oh, you mean Hugin and Munin here? Well you see, it's Odin and } Thor's centennial father-son fishing trip and Odin asked me to take } care of them while he's gone. And believe me, supplicant, you } haven't truly heard a fish story until you've listened to Odin and } Thor talk about their most recent trip after a few tankards of mead. } But I digress. } } If you thought your great aunt Irma was a gossip, trust me, she's got } nothing on these two. (Hugin and Munin, not Odin and Thor.) Every } morning they go out and every evening they come back, perch on my } shoulders, and whisper about who's gotten a nose job today, or who's } fooling around with whom, or who should really come out of the closet } since everyone knows already. I tell you, it's worse than the } National Enquirer and all the daytime talk shows combined! I can see } why Odin needed some time away. } } You owe the Oracle two raven-sized muzzles. }
Notes: I had no idea what the question referred to, so I had to wing it. (Ouch, bad pun.) I've since been informed by a man named Phil that it's the opening line from a song by the Carpenters entitled "Close to You". I've heard the song before, but didn't recognize the line out of context.
