Yes, thus the " :-) ". Definitely meant as a joke.

Just poking a little fun at this -- a fixed bird is going to be very  
popular.  Maybe sometimes "too" popular.

It was meant to come out with a tone something like the phrase:  
"Visualize Whirled Peas!".

Kinda like a new restaurant opening in your neighborhood, you probably  
don't want to be there on "opening night" if you're the type that  
likes to avoid crowds.  (GRIN)
