Hey, look what I saw in the mall: Portlandia gifts for sale! (Including Portlandia coffee mugs, coasters, nighties, and T-shirts that read "The Dream of the '90s is Alive," and of course, "Put a Bird on It".) But this is what I thought was the funniest part: a placard that unsuccessfully tries to explain what "Put a Bird on It" means.
"In Portland you can just put a bird on something and call it art." This term is referring to a skit performed on the TV series, Portlandia. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein help change a boutique's fashion and design woes by putting birds on things."
And see? THAT'S WHY IT'S FUNNY!! RIGHT? HAHAHAHAHAAA??
Okay, anyway. POLL TIME!
