Foul Mouthed Birds

Thu Jul 28, 2005 5:36 am

No, not a sweary Chavette, with gut hanging out and low intelligence, but our feathered friends, this story made me laugh;

So, anyone ever had a pet bird who could talk and in doing so, was funny/embarrassing?

Years ago, an aunt, now long deceased, had a Mynah Bird that copied her hacking smokers cough, eventually also her reply to it of "shut up, you bugger."

Woman who used to live next to us in the '80s had one of the few African Greys allowed to be kept as pets here...

..that thing could say anything, and yes he'd drop a few F-bombs every now and then, much to the delight of me and my sisters.


Its favorite activity however, was imitating the telephone's ring; and it drove her nuts because it could imitate it perfectly-- even the correct volume; so she'd always end up answering the phone for no reason.

Damn that is funny!

Hey! Answer the bird, would you?

Winston Churchill's macaw is 104 years old and still swears. He taught it to say a few choice words.

When I was a kid, my cousins had a parrot that would yell "hijuep***" (the Spanish equivalent of "son of a b*tch"). The best part of it was watching my aunt's useless efforts to silence the parrot, only to make "ese loro desgraciado" yell louder.  rotfl 
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

Didn't know about Churchill's Parrot, excellent stuff, only could have been improved had Winston taught him to sing the popular war-time ditty;
"Hitler, has only got one ball..........."

I have this 8track tape.
I think this was the same tape used against John McCain to make him go crazy when he was a POW in Vietnam.
