Angry Birds Bento Lunch

Is it a bad sign if there's an angry bird in your lunch?  I suspect that you're okay, if you only have one angry bird, but if you had 3 or 4 it would definitely mean trouble.
How did I make it?  I made homemade bread in the bread machine and added plenty of red food coloring.  Then I used food scissors to cut out the shape.  The eyes are string cheese, the beak is American cheese, and the black details are cut from a sheet of seaweed.  In addition, Pierce had a homemade oatmeal chocolate chip pumpkin cookies, grapes, and pretzels.

Pretty funny. I was asked many years ago if I wanted a bread maker and I said I had one, my kids. I make most of mine during the cold months, but miss my helpers.
