There is a myth that being hit by a “bird bomb” is lucky…have you ever heard of this?

A man in New Zealand won big after a poop incident. The man, who lives in the Bay of Islands in the north of the country, said he bought the instant-win "scratch" card after friends told him that the bird droppings were a lucky sign.  "I could not believe it when I scratched the right numbers and realized I had won $100,000," the unnamed man told New Zealand Lotteries.

"It is such a great feeling. I plan to start a new life with this win. "I want to wipe (excuse the pun) my debts and just enjoy life."

A man in Tunica, Mississippi reported having his car bombed 57 times with bird poop, after getting to the car wash and returning to the casino he and his wife were playing in his wife hit several jackpots and they took home well over $4,000.  Did the bird poo have anything to do with it? “Who knows but they are welcome to do it again!” (Source: Is it good luck when a bird poops on you? | Answerbag)

As World of Feng Shui states: “Many people believe this to be a major sign of wealth coming from heaven. Hence, although, it is really yucky and a major inconvenience, when something like this happens to you, take comfort in the fact that this is described as good luck being just around the corner!”

The high uric acid in bird droppings are why (brace yourself) some luxury spas use bird poop for a facial ingredient. Nightingale poop, in particular, is the latest rage. Some report that Asian women have used nightingale droppings as a skin treatment for thousands of years. Victoria and David Beckham are apparently big fans of the bird-poo face-do as well, as the UK Daily Mail has reported.

Speaking of models, 20 year old Brit super model Cara Delevingne got hit by poo and instagrammed two pictures of it to her 1.2 million followers. 'I can't believe a bird actually shat on my head!' she wrote below the images, adding optimistically: 'Meeehhhh!! Well at least it's good luck.'

Bird poo for your car however is not so lucky, because of the acid levels in the poop it can fade, crack, or even dimple your car’s paintwork and finish. You can find out more about cleaning bird poo off your car here.

So there is lucky poop and beauty poop, but remember bird poop is definitely not good for your car!  Have you got any bird poop stories? What do you think, bird poop, lucky or not?

I was laying on the beach and I just hung up the phone with my teenage son and he jokingly said put some ex lax in a piece of bread and throw it to the seagulls and watch them poop like crazy. As soon as I hung up a seagull flew over me and pooped on my knee, funny it landed right on the spot where I have a problem with my knee. Now here I sit posting this and a commercial came on about knee braces for problem knees .. gotta be some meaning to all this. . Any comments would be appreciated
