You're probably right. Miracle-Mineral-Supplement could endanger our feathered friends, UNLESS of course, Miracle-Mineral-Supplement could be *WEAPONIZED* to cause a gentle, cleansing diarrhea for pigeons, who could then be pressed into service in low ranking military careers.
Just imagine our advantage against (say) an islamic terrorist who normally lives in a cave and smells to high heaven. If you shoot him, it just makes him mad(der). But if you could GROSS HIM OUT with 30 or 40 direct Miracle-Mineral-Supplement pigeon droppings, he'd probably turn HIMSELF in, just in order to be able to use a hose for 3 or 4 minutes.
