BREAKING STORK NEWS ALERT.

Look at this stork!

It's a marabou stork and it's hunkered down in a zoo bathroom in St. Augustine, Florida, riding out the dangerous Hurricane Matthew. Somehow, through its storky nature, it manages to imbue this rather depressingly tiled scene with a majesty and a grandeur it would probably otherwise lack. Let's face it: people are gross, and they make everything grosser, especially bathrooms. Storks, however, are great.

I salute you, noble stork! Stay safe.
