I have a funny mayor story:
In a city where I used to work, many years ago, we had a problem with pigeons hanging out at city hall. One Saturday the mayor decided to come in and take care of the bird problem. He crawled through a second story window out onto the roof with his shotgun, and the window closed locking him out on the roof. Eventually the police discovered him or he managed to get their attention (can't remember which) and they let him back in. Never did hear if he got rid of the birds.
