Polly Want A Pringle?

If I get to choose what I’ll be in my next life, I know what it’s going to be.

You say…a human? Surely you jest.

A cat? Definitely not!

A sloth? Close, but the winner is . . .

A parrot!!

From all that I see, hear and read parrots are brilliant creatures. They live long, never work and they get a perch to sit on while mocking their owners.It’s like getting into the right field bleachers at Wrigley for free!

The smart ones have even trained their owners to give them good treats. Take for instance Reggie, who flew the coop until he got what he wanted.

The Daily Mail Online has his story.

An escaped parrot with a penchant for alcohol and crisps was lured back home with a glass of red wine and a bowl of Pringles.

Reggie was missing for more than 24 hours before owner Hubbell Walker came up with the plan to tempt him back by putting the treats on the windowsill.

And sure enough, as soon as the green-cheeked parrot spotted the feast he flew back to the house in Brockley, south east London.

Mr Walker, 27, said: ‘I was devastated when I found out Reggie was gone – you can get quite attached to a pet parrot.

‘He loves eating Pringles and drinking red wine – he’s quite an unhealthy parrot really.’

He added: ‘I don’t know where he got the taste for it, but if there is any alcohol around he’s there in a flash.

‘It’s such a relief to have him home.’

Not to be a wine snob, but everyone knows you drink white wine with Pringles.
