A foul-mouthed macaw in London has been teaching other birds to swear. Says the owner, Geoff Grewcock (that’s seriously his name?):
“They just sit there swearing at each other now, all kinds of foul language – it’s unbelievable.”
It’s similar to having very young, impressionable children around the house, don’t you think? And like little children:
Mr Grewcock added: “These birds can live until they are 70 so there are potentially another 60 years of this to contend with.”
Parrot stew, anyone?
