Gary has an interest in humor, and enjoys some quirky but clean humor. He has published the satire ebook, Beat Down the Globalists on Amazon

Albatross Gooney Bird Funnies

Gooney Birds, or the Albatross species, are funny birds. No birds provide the range of humor in dancing, taking off and landing, that Gooney Birds do. Gooney birds are able to fly with grace almost unmatched, taking advantage of a 6 to 7 foot wingspan that allows them to soar on the wind. It is what they do while they are on the ground that provides a real laugh. They are the Keystone Cops of the bird kingdom.

Gooney Birds are primarily a Pacific Ocean bird, but they wander around elsewhere with great range of flight. They are magnificant in the air. Yet other Gooney Bird behavior is very humorous. I have accumulated a few videos here for your enjoyment. I hope you take the time to get a good laugh here.

And I have some great links to my other humor sites. There is nothing funnier than poking fun at my childhood OCD tendencies, All my other humor Hubpages are found in the links below. But look at the Gooneys first!

      Was at Midway several times. Still cannot understand why the government is so damned stupid as to not leave things alone when they are working.

      Had the pleasure of living on Midway Island home of the albatross. They are a beautiful bird. Yes it is fun to watch them take off and land, but when they become airborne , they are so graceful!

      Yes, it just is funny that they did not come equipped with all the tools.

      One of the funniest things I've ever seen I love their take-offs and landings. I especially love the sound effects dubbed in the film.
