It's raining anchovies in San Francisco.

One theory is that it is a sign of the End Times. Locusts next week.

Another theory is that there's a lot of anchovies in SF Bay right now. Pelicans no longer need to plunge-dive; they just sit on the surface of the water with their beaks open, waiting for fish to swim in. When they've eaten their fill, they fly over San Francisco to their nests to feed their babies. Flying with beaks full of fish, they inevitably drop some.

Anchovies Falling On My Head
Words: F the Ineffable
Tune: Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQ-wuMqxTqs

Anchovies falling on my head
And just like a guy whose head is too big for his brain
No one can explain
These anchovies falling on my head, they keep falling

So I did me some talking to the moon
And she said I ought to steal a well-known tune
So I could lampoon
These anchovies falling on my head, they keep falling

        But there's one thing I know
        The pelicans who’d eat me
        Won't defeat me, it won't be long
        Till anchovies drop by to greet me

Anchovies falling on my head
Waiting for the bus I heard a massive splat
Thought a pelican had shat
I wish I had worn a hat.
Anchovies falling on my head, they keep falling

But I’m never gonna stop the fish by complaining
I’ll stay inside as long as it’s raining
Anchovies
Indoors I’m free
Nothing’s falling on me

Just by looking at the song title, I can usually tell if it's a song from the Ancient Matriarch. Hi, Holly. Keep 'em coming!!
