A Bird In The Bush?

A couple of weeks ago a group of friends that I have not seen in years invited me to their Halloween Costume party. Not being a person that celebrates or promotes a "holiday" like Halloween, but wanting to catch up will old pals, I decided to pin this puzzle to the inside of my jacket. When people started breaking my balls about me being "lame", I opened my jacket and ask them, "What does this say?"

"A bird in the bush"

"Read it again"

"A bird in the bush" 

"One more time"


(3/4th of the people asked missed the extra "the."  ...even reading it a 4th or 5th time.)

...After they finally got it, I'd say, "I'm the riddler muthaf%cka!"

A fun gag, but sad to see how we tend to miss things that are RIGHT IN OUR FACES.
