Thanks to John Travolta's stunning performance in 1996's groundbreaking Michael, we've had plenty of chances to imagine what humans would look like with bird-like wings. We've had far fewer chances, however, to imagine the opposite. Today, because the absence of it has left a void in our souls we hadn't even previously noticed -- and because it's Wednesday, the day we bring you the best of our weird internets world in a random compendium of images loosely related to whatever topic we happen to come up with -- we're bringing you our new favorite shit, Birds with Arms. Feel free to thank us later.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
