The African Grey? Beautiful plumage!
He must be pinin' for the rainforests.
Fjords. They pine for fjords.
Look, matey, I know a dead parrot when I see one, and Im looking at one right now. Its not pinin, its passed on! This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be! Its expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late parrot. Its a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace, if you hadnt nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies! Its rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This is an ex-parrot!
