“Never catch snowflakes with your tongue until all the birds have gone south for the winter”

"Never catch snowflakes with your tongue until all the birds have gone south for the winter” is a winter holiday tip that has been printed on many images. That is, the white stuff falling from the sky might be bird droppings instead of snow.

“Never catch snowflakes with your tongue until all the birds have flown south for the winter” was posted on the newsgroup alt.pets.parrots.cockatiels on December 5, 2002. “What’s a good Christmas tip? Never catch snowflakes with your tongue until all the birds have gone south for the winter” was printed in the book Blonde Walks into a Bar: The 4,000 Most Hilarious, Gut-Busting Gags, One-liners and Jokes (2008) by Jonathan Swan.
