Turkey Thinks This Bird Is An Israeli Spy Because Its Nostril Is Big Enough To Hold Microchips

Turkish authorities announced Tuesday that they have recovered the body of a daring Israeli spy -- replete with feathers. And a belly full of bees.

According to reports from Israeli news site YNet, a farmer discovered the dead bird, a Merops Apiaster aka the European Bee-Eater, in a field outside of Gaziantep and turned it over to authorities after he discovered an Israeli band on the bird's leg.

Granted, that band turned out to be a common means of ornithological tracking. In fact, the Society for Protection of Nature in Israel has even confirmed the bands serial number as being legitimate. But Turkey has a an even more damning piece of evidence -- the size of the Bee-eater's nostrils! Dun dun dunnnnnnnn.

Turn out, and don't ask how they verified this, that the European Bee-Eater's spacious nasal cavity is ample enough to accommodate a perceived suite of microelectronics -- spy cameras, tiny mics, tracking bugs, and whatnot -- turning these otherwise benign fowl into flying espionage centres. At least that's what Ankara's security services, who are now in possession of the 61 gram spy, believe. Or, you know, it could just be one of a large population of Bee-eaters that inhabits the Northern tip of Israel and migrate across Turkey. [Ynet via Business Insider - Image: William Kreijkes]



    Now see, this is what happens when you educate your people via propaganda instead of the right way of educating through incompetence the way the Yanks do it. Oh wait...!!

      What are you talking about?! The Yanks use BOTH.

        Umm.. why do you think I ended with "OH wait...!!" :)

          Both of you should just skip all this preliminary bs and just bang right here in the comments section while screaming about kiwi-sheep-banging and how the british aren't great at BJ's because of their huge ungainly teeth...

            Whaddya say Timmahh, you up for it? Crumbly wants a show.
