Dedimus Asadedparrotimus


Dedimus Asadedparrotimus
This is the only one of its kind to be held in captivity. It lives on the Crazy Golf Course at Haigh Hall and it’s Latin name is Dedimus Asaparrotimus. I’ll grant you it’s not up to Dave Oy standard but, it’s the only bird that doesn’t fly away when I get my camera out!

We have two budgies in a cage and we also have two budgies which sit on the welsh dresser. The parrot looks a bit like the two budgieson the dresser latin name Atinimus Budgerus

I Wonder what Sparrow Hawk would think of Waximus Parrotimus it's a miracle it's still clinging to its perch.

He’s not resting Poet, he’s dead, dead, defunct, departed, no longer with us and popped of his clogs. He’s gone to a better place.

"This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!"

A white man walks into a bar in Africa, with a parrot
on his shoulder.

"Where did you get him from"? asks the landlord.

"England, mate, there's millions of 'em"! says the parrot.
