Ministry of Fear : Cake in the nest?

Cake in the nest?

Are we to believe the portion of the cake with the microfilm was conveniently blasted up into the birds nest?

Re: Cake in the nest?

No, the birds worked together to carry it into their nest.

Re: Cake in the nest?

That is more plausible.

Re: Cake in the nest?

It seemed like an awfully big piece of cake for little birds to carry.

Re: Cake in the nest?

Yeah I was wondering about that, lol. Kind of wonder how the cake even survived the explosion when the 'blind man' was blown to smithereens.

Re: Cake in the nest?

They were African swallows. They are also known to transport coconut shell husks across vast distances....

Re: Cake in the nest?

Cool information. And all from just watching 1944 British/American spy flics. You're obviously an Alistair Sim/Lawrence Olivier/Ray Milland et al. movie lover, too. But to share your knowledge of African birds from all that is such a good laugh. Post on, mon ami.

Glad you liked it.

See Monty Python and the Holy Grail for more nonmigratory insight on my comment :)

Re: Cake in the nest?

Seriously, I don't think it was supposed to be the bird's nest. The piece of (bombproof?) cake got wedged in the brickwork after the blast, and the birds were just feeding on it.

Re: Cake in the nest?

Several swallows worked together, attaching the cake to a piece of creeper, which they used to carry it to the nest.

Janet! Donkeys!

Re: Cake in the nest?


Perhaps the non-blind man placed the cake there before being bombed and the time-traveling NSA drone was so precisely targeted that it sliced the cake in half destroying one half and leaving the half with the film to be later retrieved by a time-traveling operative under cover of being a detective from Scotland Yard.
