    Returning to the OP's theme... What species of bird appears to have no purpose but to revel in a perceived anger of others? A one eyed parrot, perhaps? A bird of paradise that got the girl, maybe?

    Two phrases jump out "no purpose but" and "a perceived anger of others."

    The OP reminds me of the fox and the grapes. He knew the grapes weren't sour but then it's easy to hate the things you can't have.
