    Side Finch

    Anyone who pulls a April Fools joke today will likely get the stink eye.

    George Plimpton's Sidd Finch was a classic one.

    Give it a read here

    Re: Side Finch

    Best alternative definition for "side finch" wins a no-prize.

    You've got 24 hours

    Mine:
    The thread on your favorite expensive shirt that typically gets stuck on something and ruins said shirt. The more expensive and irreplaceable the shirt is, the more likely it is to have side finch.

    The Reds had the real-life Sid Finch, but traded him for the never popular poo poo platter.

    This here bird's my main finch, but I have a side finch too, just in case.
    And no birds sing.

    Side Finch - The first thing every male finch looks for come springtime.

    EDIT: Great minds think alike. So, I don't see how this happened.

    Side Finch- that bird you go see when your main bird is pecking at you again.



    edit: I had not scrolled down on the page far enough to see the two above.
