ROBOTS ARE TAKING OVER RON WESTPHAL CHEVROLET
Bird Invasion in Oswego, IL
Hey, anyone else have plump black birds invade their neighborhood this morning? This was filmed in Lakeview Estates in Oswego, IL on the morning of the 27th of January 2017.
It was crazy! And, what kind of birds are they anyway? There were thousands of bird. They were kind of plump, black birds. Not tiny birds either. Not sparrow-sized. I don’t normally see birds like this in our backyard like I do the other types of birds.
A friend of mine said she saw them too! She saw them in her neighborhood several miles away. They were flying is a huge swarm(s) just like you see on T.V. Haven’t seen them since. Weird.
Stories of a flat, human-like creature that appears half man and half cardboard have existed in various parts of the world for many centuries. In fact, the only continent not to have stories of “cardboard men” is Antarctica.
The most common explanation for Flat Armando sightings is that people are playing pranks. There was even once a thriving market for “Flat Armando cutouts” to trick your family and friends. People still even dress up in Flat Armando costumes in order to perpetuate the legend.
Some sightings are also simply misidentified animals. In 2007, a photo was snapped in Pennsylvania using an automatically triggered camera hanging from a tree. While believers claimed the blurry photo—showing a flat, cardboard creature standing on two feet—was that of a “juvenile Flat Armando,” the Pennsylvania Game Commission said the creature was most likely “a bear with an extreme case of mange.”
The actual Flat Armando made a rare appearance at a nearby restaurant a few weeks ago and astonished locals with his open & friendly demeanor. Everyone thought it was a once-in-a-lifetime encounter.
But, in an unforeseen development, Flat Armando seems to have formed some sort of primal attachment to our Parts Department Manager, Paul Smith. He mysteriously showed up again at our Christmas party and hung around his favorite Parts Manager all evening. Perhaps, Paul reminds him of his father or a lost sibling. In any event, the attraction/bond between the two seems to grow stronger the more alcohol they consume together.
Then, with the evening’s festivities over, Flat Armando disappeared into the darkness but his presence in Paul’s heart remains strong and bright. Will we ever see him again? Only time will tell…
- Man, Myth or Legend?
Since the beginning of time, men have sought out the extraordinary. Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and now Flat Armando. Does this legendary creature really exist? Can this fabled man’s survival be proven? And, if found, how will he interact with modern society?
Thanks to Ron Westphal Chevrolet manager Paul Smith, we now have exclusive photos proving Flat Armando is not just an old wive’s tale. He is real and he is here.
Flat Armando was recently sited in Princeton, IL. And, believe it or not…a Chinese restaurant in Oswego. The following unretouched photos prove that not only was this elusive man captured on film…he was able to capture the hearts of all who met him that remarkable night.
Will we ever see Flat Armando again? No one knows. “It was a magical evening”, says Paul. “If we have learned anything from this…it was Flat Armando’s unwavering message of tolerance. It really struck a chord with all of us. And therefore, we plan to continue tolerating each other right here at Ron Westphal Chevrolet for many years to come.”
