Preparing yourself for getting a parrot...

A friend sent me this link yesterday and I just had to share.
Made me laugh so hard coffee came out of my nose

Re: Preparing yourself for getting a parrot...

The only time I read the paper is when I am cleaning cage trays.....doesn't everybody read the paper that way?

It may be "old news" but it can still be interesting!

Haha yes, sometimes a good story does catch my eye and I get a bit sidetracked from cleaning...

Re: Preparing yourself for getting a parrot...

I'm still laughing about visualizing chewing up the carrot and spitting it out so that it spackles the walls, and the screwdriver where she says slash the lampshade and picture frames while you're at it. OMG I was busting up hard over a good 90% of it.

Re: Preparing yourself for getting a parrot...

ROTFLMAO! The pic of a Grey atop the vacuum is for special emphasis!!

Truth is, we are all keenly aware of these factors and more, but wouldn't trade our fids for a terribly boring existence of quiet solitude!
