SHOUTING INTO THE VOID
COPAN, Honduras – 
At Macaw Mountain Bird Preserve, I met a parrot that liked to laugh, scream and cry down a garbage can.

Just like a journalist, then...

  1. Did you offer the parrot a cracker?

  2. He had a full plate of beans and tortilla scraps.

    Gustavo, the guide, tried to feed him chili seeds, but this parrot was no bird-brain...

    I met a parrot who drank beer once. Talked absolute bollocks...

  4. My friend's bunny also drank beer – and smoked cigarettes and projectile urinated. What a nasty pet: makes my gordito tabby Jake look positively suave.

  5. Jake, suave? He's a bathmat waiting to happen.

  6. Go on, go on. Keep talkin' big. It's not like I NEED a housepest while you hunt for a flat...

    Anyway, as Jake slims, he's pretty darn 007.

    The old shaken-not-stirred Bond, mind, not the nouveau thug.

  7. He's losing surface space too.

    More of a bath doily, perhaps?
