Was man so lesen muss…

Getreu meinem

neuen Motto
:

"I remember that as a child I used to visit the home of my sister, who
had a parrot that I always thought was kind of stupid. Whenever I would
enter my sister's home, the parrot would start "Here comes the jerk! Here
comes the jerk." I think he was coached by my nephew; nevertheless, I
believed strongly that all birds in general, and parrots in particular, had
no intelligence or language skills and were particularly deficient in
recognizing super-intelligent human beings! But they did speak a human
language!"
