I was 98% joking.  But since you deliberately left out defamatory  
initially (I thought it just an omission of convenience), I wonder if  
we need to apply the same consideration to 'blasphemous'.  If we were  
discussing a cow as a mascot rather than a pigeon, it would be a  
clear-and-present concern, for while I would not personally consider  
a purple cow blasphemous, a Hindu might.  I'm not aware of a similar  
religious stance toward pigeons, but that doesn't mean one doesn't
