10+ Funnies That Socially Awkward People Will Completely Understand
Say hello to “The Pigeon Gazette“
The Pigeon Gazette is a series of hilarious webcomics produced by Jane Zei. She creates these funny and relateable little illustrations as a way to unwind and laugh. She has her own tumblr and patreon that she uses to support herself and provide content.
Her comics involve a nerdy girl (probably Jane herself) battling the difficulties of everyday life. She does so in the most awkward way possible. So that begs the question: What the hell does that have to do with pigeons?
Well, according to Jane, quite a bit. Upon the topic of why The Pigeon Gazette has Pigeons in it, she says something very profound.
“I’ve always considered the pigeon the perfect, compassionate metaphor for the humbly average human being. You see pigeons every day, drab and gray, dirty with the city dust, pecking away at crumbs, milling about aimlessly in flocks, fearful of your feet. They’re so often dismissed as just another urban vermin with little grace, intelligence, or purpose to them. But if you look closer, if you really take the time to observe their existence, you notice the delicate patterns to their plumage.”
