It always intrigued me.


Yes. "White Doves" at weddings are actually white homing pigeons. If you were to release actual white doves, chances are they would all die.

Inside me is a thin woman trying to get out. I usually shut the bitch up with a martini.

Since the white doves don't "home", maybe they can't survive out there if they are used to captivity? :|

They don't have the ability to home, and while some would survive, most would die of starvation.
That, and I noticed from the few white dove releases I've seen, they have an uncanny tendency to run into windows.
