We need more parrots like this... 

Winston Churchill's parrot is alive and kicking at age 104, and it still apparently will declare "Fuck Hitler" and "Fuck the Nazis" in "that unmistakable Churchillian inflection."

It makes me wish, of course, that American presidents kept parrots in the Oval Office. Some of these parrots would not be very interesting. Would anyone line up to listen to the Eisenhower presidential parrot, or the Carter or Ford presidential parrots? I think not. But a Johnson parrot, a Nixon parrot, or a Clinton parrot -- they would be a lot of laughs.
