Talli is so funny

My BHP, Talli, is so full of personality.
Yesterday during time out, he flew over to my desk. We have a container of almonds and pistachios there. At first, Talli just walked around the desk, then he spotted the nut container. He ran over to it, reached in and took an almond, and started laughing with glee. He was laughing so hard he couldn't even eat it, he just held it in his mouth and laughed. He finally ate it, then reached in and starting grabbing them and throwing them, and laughing so hard he had all the other birds who laugh cackling right along with him.
I was completely hysterical, tears were streaming from my eyes. The harder I laughed, the more everyone else laughed. Talli and Justice laugh exactly like I do, Darwin (HH) does this "Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk" like the three stooges, Slater (OWA) has this super low chortle, and Charley (Too) has a maniacal laugh, like something from a horror movie.
Good times

Re: Talli is so funny

OMG...Birds are the best (and craziest)...Noodles yelled something inappropriate the other day and then followed it up with the same maniacal laugh...they are such smarty-pants...

Re: Talli is so funny

I definitely think they understand laughter, and when it happens in context it makes it even funnier.
This is an old clip, but showcases Talli's laugh. This is what he does after every bath.

Re: Talli is so funny

YESSSSS--- That is the same laugh with which I am familiar (and it ALWAYS is in context). I agree-- they totally understand it.

Re: Talli is so funny

Haha, is there anything more maniacal than a too's laugh? I'd be interested in seeing Noodles and Charley are in the majority with this.

Re: Talli is so funny

Noodles laugh is fantastic! I love it! I played it for the birds, and you should have seen Charley's interest.

Talli is adorable, his nut escapades sound hilarious

Any parrot laugh makes us crack up. Salty has a few, but his best is thisone.
