Egyptian Security Detain Migratory Bird Over Espionage Concerns

Cairo, Egypt – In an action that mirrors the words from Country Singer Eddie Rabbit’s 1979 #1 hit song “Suspicions” with the refrain “I’ve got these suspicions”, Egyptian security in the Qena governorate detained a migratory fowl which had an electronic apparatus attached to it for possible espionage. It turns out that after the July 3rd military overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood-backed government, suspicions are everywhere both among the government and the electorate. Presumably, the security officer who decided to detain the bird suspected that it was part of Israeli Mossad. Well, it turns out that while Mossad is good, they’re not that good.
The bird had a legitimate tracking device on it which monitored its flight patterns over French airspace. Once the bird cross the French border, the device shut off. It took the head of veterinary services in the Qena governorate to make that call. Now, it could be that he too was in on the espionage plot which would be “suspicious”. However, barring that scenario, the bird was declared no spy.
For the time being, the bird remains detained in a cage and no date has been specified for its release. The bird is believed to be a swan.

No wonder they suspected the bird of being a spy if it could suddenly change from a stork to a swan. LOL
