Winston Churchill's foul-mouthed 104-year old parrot has refused to surrender after a newspaper tracked the bird down and discovered it was still alive.
I've come across several stories
on this over the last couple days now. A 104 year old
cursing parrot that supposedly used to belong to Winston Churchill... "Charlie" has apparently been living in some garden nursery in England for the past 12 years, and now some folks are trying to catch him, or at least get him to swear some more. It's supposedly famous for squawking four-letter obscenities about Hitler.
I don't know too much about birds, but damn - 104 years old?!? I thought this was some kind of joke, but apparently it's true, as the Reuters article (and others) claims that although parrots only live to about 40 in captivity, they can make it up to around 110 years old in the wild!
I think I'm gonna go buy myself a parrot!
