Who Who Who's Got The Hooch?

So - this little fella, a Screech Owl, was found in a family's Christmas tree. When experts from a nearby wildlife sanctuary came to take the owl away, they discovered that the little dude was wasted. Yep ... you heard me .... The bird, now known as "Cheech", was wasted on wacky weed.
"Curiously enough, the owl's feathers smelled very, very potently like marijuana," said Jeff Dering, of the sanctuary. "They examined the owl, looked at its eyes, ... and the owl was, in the vernacular, stoned."
Curious enough, indeed. Interestingly, there is no explanation as to how the hooter got high, but we do know this: The folks who owned the Christmas tree in which Cheech the Screech was chillin' had the tree for 5 days before they decided to decorate it ... ... Five whole days, eh? Gee ... I wonder what they were up to ... ?

The following quote from Garden State comes to mind:
Mark's Mom: Oh ... guys? Don't stay in here all day. I had to take the batteries out of the carbon monoxide detector; it was beeping all night.
Well, the good news is that Cheech will be released from rehab in a few days. Whether he will heed his counselor's advice and stay away from gateway drugs is another matter entirely.
