Granted, it’s an ornithological rarity but we have confirmed reports that large flocks of flamingos will soon be landing on the lawns of unsuspecting Greater Seattle and Tacoma area residents sometime in the near future.

Our highly confidential sources tell us that these particularly tacky birds, (pinkus flamingous plasticus) tend to show up in the dark of night, accompanied by several members of the Seattle Majestics, who generally do their best not to laugh too loudly as they surreptitiously plant flocks of pink flamingos on local lawns.
