    Strangle That Squawker You Silly Brit.

    LONDON, England --
    A computer programmer found out his girlfriend was having an affair when his pet parrot kept repeating her lover's name, British media reported Tuesday.

    The African grey parrot kept squawking "I love you, Gary" as his owner, Chris Taylor, sat with girlfriend Suzy Collins on the sofa of their shared flat in Leeds, northern England.

    But when Taylor saw Collins's embarrassed reaction, he realized she had been having an affair -- meeting her lover in the flat whilst Ziggy looked on, the UK's Press Association reported.

    Ziggy even mimicked Collins's voice each time she answered her telephone, calling out "Hiya Gary," according to newspaper reports.

    Call-center worker Collins, 25, admitted the four-month affair with a colleague called Gary to her boyfriend and left the flat she had shared with Taylor, 30, for a year.

    Taylor said he had also been forced to part with Ziggy after the bird continued to call out Gary's name and refused to stop squawking the phrases in his ex-girlfriend's voice, media reports said.

    "I wasn't sorry to see the back of Suzy after what she did, but it really broke my heart to let Ziggy go," he said.

    "I love him to bits and I really miss having him around, but it was torture hearing him repeat that name over and over again.

    "I still can't believe he's gone. I know I'll get over Suzy, but I don't think I'll ever get over Ziggy."

    Taylor acquired Ziggy as a chick eight years ago and named him after the David Bowie character Ziggy Stardust.

    The bird has now found a new home through the offices of a local parrot dealer. Collins, who admitted the affair, said: "I'm not proud of what I did but I'm sure Chris would be the first to admit we were having problems.

    "I am surprised to hear he got rid of that bird," she added to The Guardian newspaper. "He spent more time talking to it than he did to me."

    I think all talking birds should be banned too. That is just too much pain caused by that heartless bird.

    All Britons should be physically AND emotionally protected by the government.

    That was a pre-ban bird - definitely

    Could even have been the new Government model - trained to spy on us

    I feel sorry that the poor guy had to part with his bird.

    It's also incredibly annoying to hear the excuses people make when they cheat. "Well, you knew we were having problems, and you talked to your bird more than me." Well, you resolve the problems or you break up with the guy instead of cheating while your boyfriend's away.

    I have an amazon red lored parrot, I've had her over 20 years now, about double the length of my marriage. Cheating would be a marriage ending deal for me, but I'm keeping the bird!

    *************************************
    My favorite parrot joke :)

    So there's this fella with a parrot. And this parrot swears like a sailor - I mean he's a pistol. He can swear for 5 minutes straight without repeating himself. Trouble is, the guy who owns him is a quiet, conservative type, and this bird's fowl mouth is driving him crazy.

    One day, it gets to be too much, so the guy grabs the bird by the throat, shakes him really hard, and yells, "QUIT IT!". But this just makes the bird mad and he swears more than ever. Then the guy gets mad and says, "OK for you!" and locks the bird in a kitchen cabinet. This really aggravates the bird and he claws and scratches, and when the guy finally lets him out, the bird cuts loose with a stream of invective that would make a veteran sailor blush.

    At that point, the guy is so mad that he throws the bird into the freezer. For the first few seconds there is a terrible din. The bird kicks and claws and thrashes. Then it suddenly gets_very_quiet.

    At first the guy just waits, but then he starts to think that the bird may be hurt. After a couple of minutes of silence, he's so worried that he opens up the freezer door. The bird calmly climbs onto the man's out-stretched arm and says, "Awfully sorry about the trouble I gave you. I'll do my best to improve my vocabulary from now on.".

    The man is astounded. He can't understand the transformation that has come over the parrot. Then the parrot says, "By the way, pardon me for asking, but what did the chicken do?".
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    I've heard the joke but it still brings a chuckle.

    Thanks
