    Anybody else wonder how many times the parrot had to hear that before being able to sing it?

      My African Grey heard my daughter complaining about her day in school and the next day, when she came home from school, he repeated EXACTLY what she had said the day before. In her voice.
      Sometimes they only have to hear something once.

    This seems like something that would be very, very amusing the first 10 times you got to hear it.

    Annoying the 100th time.

    And before 1K, there would be an Ex-Parrot. Pining for the fjords.

    Alfred Hitchcock approves of this video.

    Hey did anyone else read the Youtube comments?

    Apparently ripped this video off and are now showing it on their site.
    (I know a common practice, but it seems like the owner of this vid needs some guidance.)

    Anybody have any suggestions? A possibly a lawyer who’s open to some pro-bono work? :)

    Ever heard of Hatebeak? Death metal band with a parrot for a lead singer.

    Ok, not meaning to thread jack, but the other day I was pondering, do parrots taste good? Google turned up useless results. So my question for the minds/experiences of boingboing, Are Parrots good eats? Thank you.

    Have you ever heard of caninus? Sigers: 2 pitbulls, Pitbull grind core.

    I know parrots, well, parrot, but I found mine actually has musical tastes. Some songs I put on she likes, others she hates, some (Hot Chip : “I Feel better”) get the birdy WTF face.

    Yet another case of the cover being better than the original.

    I’m impressed that the parrot was able to recognize the vocal line amongst the instruments.

    Assuming this is genuine. Sounds like it but we’ve seen fakes before.

    “It’s photoshopped. I can tell by the pixels.”

    I’ve never wanted a parrot before now.

    If I could get an African Grey to sing Run To The Hills, my life would be complete.
