Trash-Talking Parrot Teaching Other Parrots to Talk Trash

08Apr08

British parrot Barney has an infamously foul beak—having once “told a mayoress, vicar and two police officers to ‘f*** off’ and called them ‘w******’” (That’s wankers…we think.) Now, despite efforts to punish him in solitary confinement (cruel?!) it seems his crass attitude has rubbed off on fellow parrots at Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, who’ve adopted some of his choicer vocabulary, including “f*** off’, ‘b*****ks’ and ‘t**s.

“It sounds like a builders’ yard sometimes when we come in here, what with all the abuse flying about,” said exasperated owner Geoff Grewcock. He added: “These birds can live until they are 70 so there are potentially another 60 years of this to contend with.”

Parrot expert Rob Harvey said that the case of parrots copying another parrot is unusual. But, Playgirl wants to know, just where did original offender pick up his bad habit in the first place? [Metro.co.uk]
