December 1, 2012 – Lefty


Lefty is the name of this parrot – a talking parrot.  The owner, my friend Tom, said that Lefty does whatever  lefty pleases.  Sometimes it will talk for hours muttering words and sometimes, it is very heard to coax even a word out of it.  Every time I see lefty, I am reminded of the following:

A man goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. The shop owner points to three identical looking parrots on a perch and says, “The parrot to the left costs $500.”
“Why does the parrot cost so much?” the customer asks.
The owner says, “Well, it knows how to use a computer.”
The customer asks about the next parrot and is told, “That one costs $1,000 because it can do everything the other parrot can do plus it knows how to use the UNIX operating system.”
Naturally, the increasingly startled man asks about the third parrot and is told, “That one costs $2,000.”
Needless to say this begs the question, “What can IT do?”
The owner replies “To be honest I’ve never seen it do a thing but the other two call him boss!”
