My apologies for the omission, Robin. I see the need now to do a White Swans revision (though, really, I could hardly improve on what you've set down here).

But since your powers of discernment (not to say imagination) are so obviously in full flower, I will herewith extend an invitation to you to share your thoughts with WIT readers.

I smiled and (REALLY) laughed out loud. Thank you.

Hey, where are the white swans, huh? The birds would be visible only to those who have paid the $5 strolling fee. A new electronic device — not unlike the one that thieves attach to our ATM machines to surreptitiously get money out of your bank account — would hover over strollers in the guise of birds that are actually refurbished drones retired from active duty in Afghanistan. When the bird-drone detects a $5 bill slipping from a would-be stroller's pocket and into the pocket of a Snug Harbor minion, the swans magically appear on the pond and proceed to act as rudely as the people who purchased them.
