When asked by the host if he had ever grubbed on one of his pets, he admitted that it almost happened once.

“I tried,” he explained. “I was dating this young lady and she said, ‘I don’t know why you’re flying those damn birds, you should be eating them.’ . . . She happened to grab one and — and she cooked one and proceeded to eat it. And I just couldn’t do it.”

“You loved that pigeon so much,” host Craig Carton responded.

“Well, ‘cause he’s got a relationship with the pigeons,” Boomer Esiason, the other host, interjected.

“It just wasn’t the right thing to do,” Tyson added. “That’s why she’s not my woman anymore.”
