Jenny McCarthy believes she is set for some good luck - after she was pooed on by a bird.

The former Playboy model - who has an eight-year-old son Evan from a previous relationship with actor-and-director John Mallory Asher - received the unexpected load while in Florida yesterday (13.07.11) but she wasn't too distressed because it considered to be a lucky omen if a bird defecates on you.

Jenny tweeted: "A bird pooped on me. Good things coming my way so says everyone. I would have preferred a four leaf clover."

Jenny is not the only celebrity to be hit with bird poo, last year Kings Of Leon abandoned a gig after bassist Jared Followill was hit in the mouth with pigeon faeces.

The band was appearing at the open air Verizon Amphitheatre in St. Louis, Missouri, when they were splattered with droppings from birds which had nested in the rafters.

Jared said: "We tried to play but it was ridiculous. I was hit by pigeons during each of the first three songs. We had 20 songs on the set list so by the end I would have been covered head to toe."
