Killer-Feeder Cap

Help feed the wildlife while you kill the wildlife

Recently in Oregon, a hunter had a hummingbird try to feed from his "blaze orange" cap. <link>

While you are busy killing woodland creatures, you can happily feed our flying friends with this new cap. Simply fill the inner bag with hummingbird juice through the fill tube, neatly hidden by the button on the top of the cap. The bag helps hold the liquid and also provides cushioning from bumps. The ventilation holes provide handy feeding ports where our tiny friends can feast while you use military-grade weapons to take out defenseless creatures. The liquid also provides a thermal barrier to keep you from overheating or freezing.

       Excellent [+].   

       Out of interest, which had the higher IQ - the hummingbird, or the Oregonian ?

       Welcome back, [Klaatu].

       cool video

       [8th of 7] my money's on the bird rather than the bird brain.   

       [MaxwellBuchanan] Doing my best to keep screwing with the world as long as my lifetime warranty is still in effect.   

       [theircompetitor] Agreed. I just wish that there was more than just a vacuous cranium for the hummingbird.   

       As an aside...isn't it amazing that hunters need to wear "blaze orange" caps to keep the [other] drunk hunters from shooting them. Come October, it gets a *bit* crazy when the elk hunters take thousands of cans of beer to drink and then go into the forest with military-grade weapons. Smart people KNOW to stay out of the woods during elk season.
Klaatu, Sep 04 2017
  

       Kind of a shame no-one tells the elk, then ...
8th of 7, Sep 04 2017
  

       [8th of 7] Actually...the elk have habituated into a rhythm of grazing openly until the first day of elk season. Then they seem to disappear, overnight. Elk with internal calendars...evolution in action.   

       Someone needs to invent an implantable chip for game animals to avoid hunters.

       I once posted an idea for feeding Robins using a beret.... will see if I can find and post the link.

       We once tried killing starlings with a Beretta ... we'll see if we can find any spent cartridge cases.

       Hey [Klaatu].
I saw that video on Castanet this morning and wondered if the bird was going to be able to make it to some real nectar before starving to death. (+)
  

       [2 fries] how's life up in Ogopogo land?   

       Yeah, I know that hummingbirds are attracted to bright colors, but to have it trying to feed through the vent holes was cute (and a bit weird). Slim pickin's if it was going for the brain.   

       Speaking of sucking brains...would zombie hummingbirds, suckin' out brains, make a good horror flick, or are they just too cute to be scary?
Klaatu, Sep 04 2017
  

       I think "Night of the Hummingbirds" would go much the same way as "Night of the Lepus"
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 04 2017
  

       My advice, avoid the woodpeckers.

       Errrrrr..... <links>.
LimpNotes, Sep 04 2017
  

       // are they just too cute to be scary? //   

       Definitely. It would be like trying to make a horror movie with sea-otters, or chinchillas, or baby pandas as the "monsters" ... "Snakes on a plane" has scare potential, "Afternoon of the Meerkats" isn't going to terrify anyone ...
8th of 7, Sep 04 2017
  

       **"Afternoon of the Meerkats" isn't going to terrify anyone ...**   

       Unless...   

       Strap killer lasers to their heads and watch as they wipe everything out with quick swivels of their heads. Watch as people try to escape, only to be sliced in two. Watch, as entire villages are reduced to heaping piles of burnt wood. Be afraid! Be VERY afraid! The laser meerkats are coming...   

       for YOU!   

       Opens nationwide in theaters on October 31, 2017
Klaatu, Sep 04 2017
  

       Mongooses would be terrifying.   

       Ogopogo-land is good but I can't afford to live here anymore. Time to vacate. Maybe head into Sasquatch-land.   

       Those poor bastards. If we were to acknowledge their existence then we'd be on the hook for replanting 96% of the giant Sequoia forests we harvested, and we can't have that now can we?   

       ...but I digress.   

       There's a fellow who designed a hummingbird-feeder welders-helmet not too long ago.
Worth a google.
  

       Cheers.   

       Cute absolutely can be bloody terrifying if done correctly with the right music. 'Talky Tina,' 'The Birds,' etc.
RayfordSteele, Sep 05 2017
  

       [2 fries] yeah, saw the welder's helmet thing, but I don't know how that would work with the shoot-'em-dead crowd. It just doesn't have that "good ol' boy" vibe, like a billed cap in blaze orange.   

       [RayfordSteele] "Hi...my name is talkie Tina...and I'm gonna suck your brains out." But who would we get to play the Telly Savalas role?
Klaatu, Sep 06 2017
  

       Jude Law ?   

       // Cute absolutely can be bloody terrifying if done correctly with the right music //   

       Proof: Miley Cyrus ...

       heh
Only until the helmet is Kevlar and the visor sincs with the infra-red app on a smart phone [Klaatu].
Hey, that might actually help deter sound-shootings. hmmmm
