Don't Eat The Popcorn?

An excerpt from a conversation with a coworker (who we'll anonymously call K) yesterday:

Coworker: "Well if you are going to Disney, don't eat the popcorn."
Rest of us: "What? Why not?"
Coworker: "Because they put dead pigeons in it!"

There are definitely a lot of entertaining urban legends floating around our culture about Disney but this one was the best one I've heard in a while. I guess the legend was that if someone found a dead bird in the park, they'd toss it quickly into the popcorn bin to hide it from the park goers. I think shoving it into one of those rolling freezers that they sell the Mickey Mouse shaped popsicles out of would be more practical (especially in the blazing Florida heat and humidity) but really what do I know about corpse removal in a themed environment? What I do know is as long as there are always interesting urban legends, true or not, there will always be something fun to illustrate.
