When I moved to London in January one of the first billboards I noticed
(at Ealing Broadway station, I think) proffered this pigeon-related

  A smart Londoner doesn't feed the pigeons.
  A smart Londoner travels by Heathrow Connect.

I'm still puzzled by it.  Are those two activities supposed to be
mutually exclusive?  Is the suggestion that if you get the urge to do
the former you should do the latter instead?

And has a corresponding update been made to the lyrics of that 'Mary
Poppins' song?
