Parrots removed from Zoo for foul language

I wonder why there haven’t been any jokes posted lately,
This got to be funny because I couldn’t stop laughing when I read this. I wish there was audio of that Davie

Funny parrots

Sochi111. Here in Fayetteville North Carolina there was a pet store in Eutaw shopping center that had a cockatoo that cussed like a sailor. Story goes the store owner was a retired GI from Ft Bragg. Mom and I could take the bus when I was little and do her shopping. We went into the pet shop and that bird went off. Mom hurried us out and I got my butt popped for laughing. There was an aquarium shop on Purdue Street that also had a toucan. It would scream every time the door opened. Shop owner had some sort of parrot that would eat the feeder goldfish and every time would say “Tastes like %#&*” ! The retired soldiers around here are some of the coolest and most interesting people I have ever met

Haha, that’s hillarious. I never thought soldiers would cuss.

That was from “Frasier”. Bird learns insulting expressions, repeats them at the most inopportune time.

Hang on…

Ah, found at least part of it…

since we are telling Pet Shop Parrot stories, here is one of my “pet sounds”…..

local store’s Parrot’s favorite phrase was: “Save Me Some”.
he said this since the owner did, too, when his wife brought brownies to the store.
my girlfriend and i were in the store when a group of 3 boys and 1 girl walked in.
Save Me Some! Save Me Some! Save Me Some!…he would not stop until they left.
brings a smile every time i remember that.

Sochi111 My dad was CSM of the Special Forces group here on Ft. Bragg. Since I inherited my dad’s hard headedness I heard and was described by profanity I did not even understand. I remember sitting on a stool at the bar eating a hot dog at the watering hole where those guys hung out and repeated a “new phrase “ I had just heard. The crowd cracked up and Dad popped me in the back of the head even though he was laughing. That crowd had a way with words.
