Hawk sighted near St. Paul’s

Written by

Our Hero is making some appearances by the church, probably to enjoy the nice weather and the sparrows and pigeons that hang out there.

Jeff Chou sent in the following picture of H-dad perched on a lamp by the chapel.

 

AND Hawkmadinejad made his YouTube debut via an accidental filming by Xavier Estevez! He’s even got his own tab tag! Video and note from Estavez after the jump.


I was headed down to the subway from EC, and as I walked down that

annoying ramp-staircase by St. Paul’s Chapel, I was stopped dead in my

tracks by the sight of Hawkmadinejad, the splendid blond beast,

perched on the handrail, displaying his fearsome wingspan for all the

world to see and heed his terrible warning. By the time I recovered

from the paralysis of awe, he switched to a more staid posture. I

intended to take a picture with my phone, but as luck would have it, I

had it set to video mode, making this quite possibly the first live

video of Hawkmadinejad ever captured.

Thanks to our tipsters. If you’ve seen Our Hero around campus or would like to suggest content for Hawkmadinebwog, send tips to [email protected]

  1. yum!  

    Hawks is good eatin'!

  2. blond beast  

    nice Nietzsche reference.

  3. yesss  

    i always wondered, do hawks even eat lambs? i mean, lambs is big you know? hawks eat like, squirrels on down. what the fuck was nietzsche talkin about?

  4. I wish...

    Hawkmadinejad was my roomie.

    He'd be a cool RAptor too!

    Golden eagles sometimes eat young deer and goats, and I think "hawk" used to be more of a general term for a bird of prey, so it's not inconceivable that he was talking about eagles eating lambs.

  6. stan  

    Gorgeous photo! H-dad looks sleek and stunning.

  7. I seriously  

    doubt that Hawkmadinejad would taste good. He's tawny and lean, not fat like our friends in order galliformes.

  8. hm?  

    what does this mean? "He's even got his own tab!"

  9. tab  

    on youtube. So there is a link to all videos that are labeled "Hawkmadinejad"

    • ugh  

      that's not a tab, it's a tag. also, it's not that hard to have your own tag, anyone can do it, you just type whatever the hell you want in the box when you submit the video.

      so basically, Hawkmadinejad having his own tag is as exciting as any joe smith having his own youtube account and the ability to tag whatever he wants. whoopdedoo?

    Oops, yeah, it is a tag and not a tab. That was a firefoxian slip I guess.

    Anyway, of course I know that you get to add the tags yourself (we tag on bwog too...). My intent in pointing this out is that H-dad is FAMOUS and IMPORTANT and having his own tag is just more proof of how frikin important he is. (Both here, and in the original post, I was being facetious.)

    Too alarming now to talk about
    Take your pictures down and shake it out
    Truth or consequence, say it aloud
    Use that evidence, race it around

    There goes my hero
    Watch him as he goes
    There goes my hero
    Hes ordinary

    Dont the best of them bleed it out
    While the rest of them peter out
    Truth or consequence, say it aloud
    Use that evidence, race it around

    There goes my hero
    Watch him as he goes
    There goes my hero
    Hes ordinary

    Kudos my hero leaving all the best
    You know my hero, the one thats on

    There goes my hero
    Watch him as he goes
    There goes my hero
    Hes ordinary

    I think I know why the Atlanta Hawks are playing so well in the basketball playoffs, because H-Dad joined them.

    That also explains the lack of news about him on campus.
