Disturbing Things

2. While driving to work today, I came across a clot of ravens in the road. No big surprise; they're EVERYWHERE here. It was also no surprise to see, when they took off as I came closer, than one of them had something dangling from its beak. They're always getting into whatever trash they can find. He hopped to the edge of the road, and as I passed, I saw what it was.

An unfurled condom. An unfurled pink condom.

Now, to be fair, I couldn't tell if it had been used or not. Maybe some kids found it or bought it and unrolled it or something. Maybe the raven liked the taste of strawberry-flavored rubber.

But it was still weird.

This has been your episode of Disturbing Things for today.
