I’m down with Home Alone. But I won’t lie, I’ve never been a big Home Alone 2 fan.
Despite the fact that it takes place in NYC, where I live, and it essentially runs back most of the stuff that made the first movie so delightful, it just doesn’t have that same magic. My kids made me watch it again this year and I was bored the whole time, even when Kevin was once again torturing and attempting to murder the Sticky Bandits.
But after learning of a hilarious Twitter trend, I might have to give the movie another try. Because while the movie itself isn’t all that entertaining, mocking Piers Morgan definitely is.
Someone on Twiter realized that Piers, the notorious host of Good Morning Britain, looks a lot like Brenda Fricker, the woman who plays the pigeon lady whom Kevin befriends in Home Alone 2. Piers does not enjoy this comparison, which leads to astonishingly funny headlines like this one in LadBible.
“Piers Morgan has once again denied he is the ‘bird lady’ from Home Alone 2.”
The theory has apparently been around for a few years, and resurfaced when a Twitter user named @kessins1 sent a tweet directly to Morgan:

There are a handful of such tweets:
Has anyone ever seen Piers Morgan and the pigeon lady from Home Alone 2, in the same room at the same time?? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/bVIbbf9pK4

And the absolute best part is that this theory arose when Morgan’s own son, Spencer, tweeted it out two years ago:

Just devastating. And Piers agrees, as he repsonded to his son’s tweet with three angry face emojis.
So while I may not be a fan of Home Alone 2, I have definitely found something to appreciate about it!
