It’s not a college graduation until your grandmother is squealing for help and your father is chasing a giant beast of death across a field.
Students at Pepperdine University were victimized by not one but two pelicans this weekend, when the birds invaded their graduation ceremony and demanded to walk across the stage. No one seems to have been harmed, and the birds don’t seemed to have tried too hard to ruin the affair. But that didn’t stop the crowd from reacting as if they were in a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds.
Security had to step in and sequester the two birds, who did not look happy about it. The pelicans were not offered diplomas, despite their best efforts and in keeping with university tradition.
