Without further ado, congratulations to Chevy67 for the winning caption of, "Santa Barbara housing prices are for the birds!" We don't have to explain why it works, just look at 

Congrats again Chevy67, you have won yourself a $25 gift card to a local establishment of your choice and a super soft and stylish edhat t-shirt.

Do you see the side of the hole to get into the house?! Fluffy bird discrimination, we should protest by hanging out up here and decorating the roof!

"Honey, they're staring at us."

"Meet their gaze, dear, meet their gaze. The McFeatherchirps-Joneses look down in the face of no one."

"I do love you so, Chip."

Yes dear, it is nice. But we can afford it only if we can put an AUD on the pole below us.

"I definitely pictured something different in my mind when I heard them talk about building more affordable housing in California."

These Air B(ird) and B(ird) rentals sure aren't worth the hype! And in "Santa Barbara" of all places! I say let's call the manager and get our seeds back!

Well, it could use some paint and a perch, and it is a bit more expensive, but it is the first one we've seen that's not a total fixer-upper.

This is the last time we answer an ad for "Rustic, charming one bedroom located in natural setting."

It’s only a studio, I thought you said it was one bedroom??!&¥

When I said "I want a south facing view..." Ed, I meant from the INSIDE!

It’s okay, Fred. We can be in our yard without a mask now!

First you said 40 days and nights.
Then you said get on the roof for rescue if it floods.
But you know we can fly, right?

Real estate in Santa Barbara is off of the charts. As your realtor I can only offer you a one room house, no windows and a permanently open door. Cheap at twice the price.

Oh look, the price is up to $5.99 a gallon. We should just fly to your mother's for Easter.

I'm telling you, the flock was supposed to gather "at the Pole's house."

“Canary Islands he says! Canary Islands! Always trying to save money! A deal on a Canary Condo! I told you I wanted to visit the Galapagos this year, but nooooo! Good job Bob. Why don’t you stick your head in there again and tell me what we’re missing! I should have married Hank! Good Lord! Why can’t you ever get it right?”

Honey the house is great, but I think there's a man living in the backyard.

I'm sorry but the rent is too high, sweetie. We are going to have to downsize!

Yes, dear, it is modest, but we'll just have to continue to carefully save our money. It just takes time to work up to Harry and Meghan's quality of abode.

"How do we get in there without a perch? You go first", "No, you go first".

1) "Don't go in...there's a trap filled with clickbait!"

2) "I disagree. We're still one anachronism short of a New Yorker cartoon."

3) "I'm too tired to make dinner, honey. But if you regurgitate the worms, I'll do the dishes."

4) "It's so demeaning when they anthropomorphize us."

Where's the woodpecker when we need him? Neither of us can fit through the front door!
