Child’s Toy Parrot Swears Like A Real Parrot

by | 19th, March 2009

TINA Banks is looking for a toy for Roxy, her toddler. At the 99p Store in Brighton, East Sussex, she spots just the thing: a brightly coloured parrot.

Says the partot:

“Oi! What are you looking at ****hole.”

This is no ordinary toy parrot; this is an educational parrot, instructing the child in the ways of the modern street idiom.

Says the parrot:

“I’m going to rip your head off and **** down your neck”.

Roxy is now equipped to survive in the rough and tumble of the child’s tea party, able to repeat phrases such as:

“Sod off, sod off”, “Oi! Bugger off” and “What are you staring at ****hole?”

Says Mrs Banks:

“I bought it because Roxy was throwing a paddy in her pram and I thought the parrot might keep her a little bit quiet.”

And help her channel her anger?

“But when we got outside and I handed it to her, it came out with these swear words. The worse thing was there was a man in front of us who thought it was aimed at him. I went ten shades of red and have never been so embarrassed in my life. When I bought it I didn’t realise it spoke, I just thought it was a cuddly toy.

“But it has got a cord coming out of its backside that, when you pull it, comes out with all this bad language. It’s shocking to think this was being sold in a toy section.”

At least the toy is realistic. Parrots are famed throughout the revered for being able to swear.

Mrs Banks adds:

“I took it from Roxy who was in the pram and couldn’t get home quick enough. She’s too young to know what the words mean but I’ve got two other kids, aged eight and nine, who do know.”

So no need for the parrot, then. Best donate it to a good cause, like an only child.
