    I never liked that^ overused and unoriginal analogy (nothing personal Triborough, we've all used it), but surely rats with wings would be much more horrifying to encounter than a pigeon.

    The analogy is due to all the disease and filth they carry. It is unoriginal, but it is true.

    I always liked "Flying Ashtray."

    There is no documented proof that pigeons are disease carriers to any greater extend than the general bird population.

    There are just too many of them - like geese.

    And linking pigeons to rats may inadvertently enhance their status. Pigeons appear to be really stupid, while rats are highly intelligent. Studies indicate that rats possess metacognition.

    So the lesson here is: Don't insult the rats.
