Free: Fowl-Mouthed Parrot

From Craigslist: My Uncle Walt finally died and the stingy SOB left me with his stupid cussing parrot, while my sister SHARON gets his house. I don’t like the parrot because Uncle Walt taught it mostly racial epithets which I find distasteful. Or, more accurately, confusing. (The parrot hates “bog devils,” whatever they are.) He read more »
