Virgin Radio’s Big Rossi’s Crazy Tales
How can a bird send a man to jail? It depends what you tell it to say. A motorist was arrested for driving under the influence in Mexico after his pet parrot told police he was intoxicated. The man was pulled over by traffic officers at a routine checkpoint in Mexico City, and as he got out of his car police heard a voice saying: “He’s drunk, he’s drunk.” At first they thought it was a passenger in the car but when they shone their torch inside the vehicle they were stunned to see an African Grey parrot. The driver was then tested and arrested! I bet he wished he’d taught it to say something different. I think: “Help, they’ve turned me into a parrot” would have been much funnier.
