WARWICK, R.I. -- A year-long dispute has landed two neighbors in court.
At issue: Willy's the cockatoo's salty language.
In court documents, Kathleen Melker of 55 Harris Ave. asserts she was within earshot of Willy, her neighbor's pet, when he repeatedly called her "whore." The incident, she says, punctuated an acrimonious relationship with Lynne Taylor of 51 Harris Ave. that she says included Taylor pelting rocks over the fence and threats to capture Melker's cat and "drown it in the Bay." No charges have been filed.

Sounds like a solution to me.
I’m not actually sure this is illegal.
Pets can be very perceptive about humans, you know...
Warwick woman accused of training pet bird to swear at ex-husband’s new girlfriend
Boy, you just can’t make stuff like this up.
THIS is the FUNNIEST thing I have read in a LONG, LONG time! :-)!
The cockatoo’s “War on Women” never ends.
Not a ping.
I think teaching a parrot to berate your xhusbands girl friend is really funny.
That’s my wife’s opinion also.
When i met her, she had three cats. She said that they felt very at ease around me.
This is a little wierd because I am not really a cat person.
This’ll be a 2013 movie, just you watch and see.
Yep, a lot of dogs don’t seem to like the Amish don’t cha know
“So lady, what did the Turkey do?”
Where’s Dr. Doolittle? Chicks get into cat fight over bird.
Women have to be Democrats.
One more way in how they are giving us the bird! ‘Pod
My husband is a veterinarian and every night when he watches TV (while napping) two cats and a Corgi compete for a spot on his lap.
So I have a question - is “whore” a curse word? Granted it is an insult but what is the threshold a word has to cross to become a curse word? Is that threshold absolute or does it change over time?
I am interested in hearing your thoughts.
There would be times I'd knock on the door when no one was home, but the bird would start bitching at him in her voice. "Jeeezow, REEEEiiickk, clean that shit up!". Other times it sounded just like him answering the phone.
The only way to tell it was just the bird was to keep knocking and no one would come to the door.
This is the dictionary definition a woman who engages in promiscuous sexual intercourse, usually for money; prostitute; harlot; strumpet. My assumption is if it isn’t directly related to a woman who fits the definition, it can be considered slander. In this instance, I don’t see the validity of a court case based on the bird saying it but there appears to be other issues involving the individuals. What would be comical is if the bird was smuggled into the DNC.
