Murmuration: a flock of starlings

It takes a couple of moments to get past the girls mugging for the camera to get to the video of the murmuration.

A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by BK, a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"

"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the BK replied.

"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" the man asked.

"No, I don't waste time fishing," BK said. "I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."

"Will you spend this on a surfboard instead of food?" the man asked.

"Are you NUTS!" replied BK, "I haven't surfed in 20 years!"

"Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district instead of food?" the man asked.

"What disease would I get for ten lousy bucks?" exclaimed BK?

"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."

BK was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."

The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up beer, fishing, surfing, and sex."
