THE PARROT AND BALLS

See, see...I'm not as crazy as you think. Well....maybe...nah!

Remember this post Don't Talk To My Parrot. Yes, you all laughed, but you thought it was a joke! Ah, hah! Here, live and in bloody color Watch Parrot Attack. It cracked me right up! The guy was maimed and the parrot lost all but one of its large tail feathers!

I guess there'll be no shakin' his tail feathers for a while! Yikes!

And the Joke of the Day...


A Scottish man was at a baseball game.

It was the first time he had ever seen the sport so he sat quietly. The first batter approached the mound; he took a few swings and then hit a double. Everyone was on their feet screaming, "Run, Run!"

This happened two more times, with a single and a triple. The Scottish man was now excited and ready to get into the game.

The next batter came up and four balls went by. The umpire called, "Walk!" And the batter started on a slow trot to first. The Scotchman, extremely excited now, stood up and screamed, "R-R-Run ye basstarrd, rrrun!"

Everyone around him started laughing. So the Scotchman, extremely embarrased, sat back down. A friendly fan, seeing the Scotchman's embarassment, leaned over and said, "He can't run - he got four balls."

The Scotchman then stood up and screamed, "Walk with pride, man...walk with pride!"

I don't know what came over me, chalk it up to sinus medication! Yikes! But I love to use balls in the title. It gets me the strangest traffic from Google!

    HAHAHAHA - that was WRONG!

    the talking parrot - kids are much the same way - can't tell ya how many times my mom-in-law has shot daggers at me. "Mom said it's a wonder dad made it to ten with the way you cook." {OOPS!}

    Good parrot! Good parrot! Those macaw beaks can cut fingers off! I wonder if that guy was missing anything.

    I wish the news account had told about the bird's owner's reaction.

    LOL - shame on you Bonnie! I just saw a story on CNN about a parrot who told his owner about his wife's affair!

    Bonnie, thanks for the sympathy regarding the loss of our bagel baker. I did leave a message, but told him how much I'd miss him and how much I enjoyed his work, the best bagels in the area.

    BTW, has Torgo really closed up shop?
