Our parrot outings made the front page of out local newspaper today. Here's a link to the story. There's no photos online, which is a bummer, because there were some nice shots in there. Here's a cheezy picture of the front page:

Yeah. I'm a geek.

Technically, you're a "bird nerd."

That's pretty cool though. I can't believe you got on the front page.

I was going to make a joke, then remembered I'm a geek, too.

You looked pretty tough on the cover of the new issue...for a dork, that is.

It seems you've achieved "parroty"...

Or are you just giving someone the bird?

and what is wrong with birds? I have a fine feathered friend too. Penny is an extremely friendly little fancy parakeet.

I wonder how grilled parrot tastes...

If you turn the bird upside down are you flipping the bird?

I kill myself. I'll be here all week, be sure to try the waiters and tip the meatloaf.

My stepmother (who is a teacher) has an African Grey.

One day, there was a fire drill. Alarm goes off, everyone shuffles out. Apparently something went wrong and the alarm went off for a second time. Everyone shuffled out. So everyone comes back into the class, and a few minutes later, the alarm goes off again. Everyone shuffles out... and finds that none of the other classes are leaving, and that there's no alarm outside.

The bird had learned to do the fire-alarm. And hasn't given it up yet.
