Your Field Guide to Spotting Harpies

Why would you want to hang out with the Harpies? They are seriously nasty creatures, whose favorite thing to do is snatch food off of people's tables and then poop on the scraps left behind. If you're really determined to meet them, all you have to do is go to the Strophades Islands near Greece and lay out a picnic. They'll be the stinky bird-creatures with the heads of ugly women that come and steal everything. We seriously recommend you avoid this whole situation. You'll be better off never having met them.
