  2. Holy fuck, that is one of the funniest things I have ever read. If I had a bucket list, it would have now have "buy a parrot" on it.

  3. I used to have an African Grey (named "Sparky" haha) that my dad got from his friend. Whenever my mom would go to work, he would say, "Bye~" He would also scream my name a la the way my mom would, among plenty of other things. He was a bit of a grouchy bird, but I loved him anyways. Then he ate what the vet identified to be a rubber band or something and died. :(
