Parrot Fashion

Crikey! A lecturer from Thanet College is demanding a DNA test on a parrot. Pickle the parrot was kidnapped in January, but Sue Parsons reckons she's tracked her down to a pub in Margate, and now wants the test to prove she's hers. Asked how she knew it was Pickle, Sue said:

'The bird responded to me.' Uhuh, yeh, sometimes that happens, especially when alcohol's involved.

'I kissed her beak and she sucked my finger. I caressed her lots of times. I made one noise to her that I used to make and she repeated it immediately.' Um....

'I haven’t even been able to clean her cage out. I’ve left it exactly as it was.' Er... just give her the flippin' parrot back for gawd's sake! They're clearly very, er, close!

no i am not polysexual lol

there were so many bizarre coincidences that led to me believing the bird was mine - it was bought and sold quickly at the same time mine was pinched, the bird responded to me, it had the same bird tag no. except for one number (it could have even been from the same nest of chicks!)

anyway tricia show phoned and wanted to pay for the dna so shame it was not my bird. radio 4 have been talking about it! a womans magazine wanted to buy the story, it made page 5 of the Times (national not local)
oh my gosh, and still no one has seen my bird.
seriously though although i chuckle, i am gutted so if anyone has seen my bird please come forward as pickle babe, i know that you are out there and am still willing to put up an award!

sorry i couldnt get into the pub till agreed with the police. my bird had a small white bit on one claw - something the bird in pub has not got but i coud nt get to see that when i went in.

but beware the bloody bastard who pinched my bird. i hate thieves. they dont realise what they wreck when it is a live animal or bird.

cyber mum , i am really sorry for your loss. my tortoise was stolen by community service types who was doing the old ladies garden next to mine. I just hope he is ok. Sometimes I think If i caught these people i would go mad and pull thier pants and trousers down to thier ankles and spank thier bums. seriously. They wouldn't look so hard then would they in front of thier mates with my tortoise poking its head out.
