My sister-in-law has one of those f*cking birds. Ring the doorbell and my sister-in-law says "Hello! Come in!". Only, it isn't her - it's the bird. It sounds just like her.

She had some work done on her kitchen, the contracter asked what she thought about his color choices... Melissa wasn't in the room, so the bird made the selections for her. Turned out pretty good.

I've taught the bird some interesting phrases. It coo's like a pigeon and burps pretty good. But my masterpiece is: "No! Stop. My husband will be home soon."

They don't let me bird-sit anymore. Odd, don't you think?

I've been trying to get it to imitate the Ymir from "20 Million Miles to Earth" and that howl from Led Zep's "The Immigrant Song".

I also taught it to say "Nevermore", but somehow it's just not the same coming out of a parrot...

My girlfriend and I babysat a parrot for a month. The parrot had been, for many years, the pet of a semi-disabled old lady.

The bird made many amusing noises. My favorite was "Bill! BILL! Help! I can't get up!"

That was great.

My family had an African Gray when I was in grade school. All he would say was dirty words and drug related phrases. Kids will be kids I guess.

Those birds are truly amazing. Most of them outlive people too.

Ravenshoe, your bit has me laughing like a madman. [Smile]

My younger sister got a parakeet from my aunt Dorothy. At the time, in 1994, my aunt was unsure what to name him, but seeing as the nation was enraptured with a certain movie, she named him 'Forrest Gump.'

And within a matter of months, he would be quoting either 'Peter Piper' or 'Hi my name is forrest, forrest gump. People call me forrest Gump.'

The little guy lived about 10 years, which was pretty long (he passed away in December of last year. Very sad, he was a nice little guy, and gave us plenty of joy, especially when my sister decided to stop clipping his wings, and he had his chance to fly around the room).

We had a parakeet once who could whistle the entire opening theme from THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW .. she could actually fool my dad into thinking the show was starting; which wasn't too difficult to believe, considering it was playing about 4 times a day at the time, on TBS in the 1980's ..
