Parrots in wildlife park moved after swearing at visitors

Five parrots have been removed from public view at a British wildlife park after they started swearing at customers.

The foul-mouthed birds were split up after they launched a number of different expletives at visitors and staff just days after being donated to Lincolnshire Wildlife Park in eastern England.

“It just went ballistic, they were all swearing,” the venue’s chief executive Steve Nichols told CNN Travel on Tuesday. “We were a little concerned about the children.”

    I suspect that swearing parrots would be a big draw, even for parents with children.

    I know! I mean even I would go see these foul-mouthed jerks.

    Also: it figures that they can swear better ‘n me. Jerks.

    What those salty little devils say is far less destructive than anything out of LDN’s pie-hole. Probably more articulate and intelligible too.

  5. Mr Nichols said: “We put them in an off-shore enclosure with the intention that hopefully they will start learning the other parrot’s noise that are around.

    “They are African grey parrots and they are very, very good at learning vocalisations from all sorts of noises.”

    Cool, now they can all teach the other birds they’re with how to swear…

    Decades ago my brother went off to U of F and joined a fraternity. One of his frat brothers had an African gray that he’d brought to school with him. When that fat brother graduated he had to bequeath the parrot to the fraternity as a mascot because it had learned far too much salty language at that esteemed pantheon of higher learning.

    I used to babysit a little girl whose family owned a mynah bird. It did all sorts of mimicry but the creepy thing was that it said stuff in the mom’s voice. It was weird!
