GOSHEN, AR: Yesterday marked the return of the annual White Pelican Rally on Beaver Lake. Large flocks of the white fowl were spotted on White (of course) River between Pinhook and Neil’s Bluff.
Area merchants don’t expect much impact on the economy. “These birds are such tightwads,” said Greta P. Allendorf, owner of Cheap Thrills. “All they want to do is pig out at the free shad buffet on Beaver Lake and crap all over the shoreline.”
In response to the Pelican Rally, a murder of crows is staging a protest flight this Saturday. The Pink Flamingos have been invited to join in, but so far, no official word from the flamingos.
