The finding of a parrot with an almost unparalleled power to communicate with people has brought scientists up short.

I want that bird. Ok, maybe not that one, but one just like it. Wouldn't it be great to have him at home? You come home, "Hey Polly, did you record Dr. Phil for me?"

*SQUAWK! You're a loser! Eat some pills! SQUAWK!*

It would be just like home again. Awesome.

*SQUAWK! I shit on your pillow! SQUAWK!*

my friend's family found a talking bird in their backyard once. they figured it was a lost pet because it would say, "Walter! Phyllis!" over and over again. they put an ad in the paper but nobody claimed the bird so they kept him. now he teases everyone, even the dogs. he'll mimic their names being called, "Fido! Charlie!" and then when they scramble into the kitchen he'd shout "Get outta here!"

That's GREAT!!!

Although, you know, somewhere Walter and Phyllis are dead. With cats eating their faces.

the bird would also say, "Let's go to yard sales!"
