A bird checks me out at the market - looking for target practice?

A bird checks me out at the market - looking for target practice?

On a recent trip to the bird market I was awarded with a little present from a winged friend. A Chinese man informed me that this is good luck… hmmm interesting, I would think it is more bad luck to have a creature’s excrement plopped on my shoulder. I set out to google what exactly makes bird poop good luck. I found many resources saying that it is good luck… but no reason why. I guess even google has its limits…who comes up with this stuff anyway!? Sidetrack: During my quest for knowledge, I found this interesting article, oh jeez:

Bird Poop Facials

No thank you! I will pass on the bird poop facial – the plop on my shoulder was traumatizing enough. Does anyone know where that superstition comes from?
