When I first saw this story, I thought to myself that this has to be a joke. I mean seriously, who in their right mind would attempt to get a peacock on a flight, let alone try and pass it off as some sort of therapy animal. Seriously? To her credit, the Brooklyn artist did offer to buy an extra seat for the creature, so this wasn’t about the money, but probably more about BRINGING A DAMN PEACOCK ONTO A COMMERCIAL FLIGHT!
I found this hilarious, and here’s the bottom line: whether this was staged, real, a publicity stunt, or whatever, people are talking about the artist and her art peacock. On that aspect alone, you have to give props to this woman. She’s getting free press from a crap load of people. Whether intentional or not, this may end up bringing some new eyes to her artwork. So, you gotta at least acknowledge that!
Caw caw, caw caw. I don’t know, those are my peacock sounds.
