    As far as I'm aware.. yes it's true.. not because they can't deal with excess wind.. but because the soda reacts very quickly with their stomach acid.

    As some toothpastes also have soda in them this can also be used.

    I wonder if the bird would actually explode as opposed to a mild rupture.I guess that would depend on the amount of gas that is produced by a tablet.Im not sure if the force produced by an alka-seltzer would be ample enough to cause a violent explosion.I may have to try an experiment with a balloon and see how much gas is produced.Im thinking that it would kill the bird but not make it explode like a pipe bomb.

    cant find it on Snopes (if you dont know get to know), but they did debunk the pigeons-eating-rice-explode myth.

    was this triggred by Fozzy's coke-mentos post, or are you feeling more mischievous than usual mate?

    A bit of both -just heard it and din't belive it. But seeing as Fez sez then it must be true...I think I prefer the image of the bird going up in one humungus fart tahn the painful reality :google:

    i was such a horrible child.

    we used to coax the gulls closer to us by throwing the food closer and closer to our feet and then POW! kick em right in the baby maker..

    one time we put bicarb soda and asprin into the bread we were feeding them but they didnt stick around for us to see the show.

    and thats all i have to add.
