I'm still working on my "why threads are bad" rant, but in the meantime, here's a joke with a Parrot in it...
One day, a Cockatoo walks into an antique shop. The owner walks over and says to the Cockatoo:
"Hello there, can I help you with anything?"
The Cockatoo points his wing at a chair, and says to the shopkeeper:
"What can you tell me about this chair?"
The shopkeeper smiles at the bird, and launches into his best sales speech:
"I must say, you've got an eye for exceptional furniture. This chair is executed in the Lous XIV style, we estimate the manufacturing date to be around 1880, and the fantastic patina of the wood shows that it's been exceptionally well cared-for..."
The Cockatoo interrupts the sales pitch, and says:
"Yes, yes, that is all well and good, but what I really wanted to know is -
how does it taste?"
