The Pub?!?!

You would not believe what just came into my Village pub... a PARROT!?

The bloke named John(our primary school council leader - worrying I know) comes to the Four Horse shoes with a parrot in a cage under one arm and a dog on a lead in the other.

Unbelievable! The parrot can talk. It was a fantastic afternoon chatting with it. It likes to whistle a lot, little tunes it gets from TV and so on. He also said a few funny phrases. The bird is called Humphrey by the way.

"My Name is Humphrey, I am a Vulture" <--- My favorite.

"Im a Celebrity" <--- Reason being, he escaped and was in a news paper.

"Who turned out the lights" <---- Said when john put a blanket over the cage to keep the rain off.

As you can tell it was very funny. He also did some evil laughs too. Oh and a telephone ringing. That was amazing seeing as it sounded very electronic.

Haha, great fun.

Should we have a Off to the Pub thread? Anywhoo, what is everyone up to?

I would've gone to the pub today, but I put it off for tomorrow, as I have to get up early tomorrow to move some stuff for my uncle. So I'm actually in bed, so this is more like my "off to bed"-post. :P But I'm gonna get sh*tfaced tomorrow.

Edit: Btw, I'd love to see a talking parrot! Did ya take any pics, or better, film it?

Heh, we haven't actually got any "local bar", but we're proud to have the highest amount of bars and nightclubs of any city in Norway.

I'm practically next door to a pub. Not the friendliest bunch, but you can just ignore them and get on with drinking and playing pool.

Hmm. pub tomorrow sounds like a plan.

Agreed. I live opposite one student pub named the Avondale, and am surrounded by a plethora of clubs and bars.

Trying to sleep during the weekends isn't all that easy, but i'm used to it.

Ahh yeah I'm just back from the pub.. Been out playing PGA Golf on one of those pub machines with the ball.. Great!!

A load of parakeets chill out near me and have done for years.. Not quite the same but still nice. There seem to be loads in London since a few escaped quite a few years ago.
