Daily One Inch Button - Carrier Pigeon

No, they don't always smuggle drugs - though some of them are being used for that nefarious purpose right now. Sometimes they were used for transporting important messages, as seen in this clip of someone playing a Nancy Drew video game. Were they the inspiration for the pet owls that transported letters in the wizarding world of Harry Potter?

Of course they were, silly. Actually, one of my favourite clips from the movies is this one, where Hermione tells Harry that she is not an owl. The owl depicted on the button looks like he's up to no good. Or maybe he's up to nothing but good?
