Mouth Like A Sailor: Cockatoo Cussing At Bird Rescue

February 24, 2016


WARNING: Clearly this bird learned some dirty words on the back of the bus. Best watched at home in bed under the covers with pants off but underwear still on.

This is a video of Pebbles the cockatoo cussing at a person destroying a round bird cage because round cages are bad for birds. Birds like corners. I did not know that. Although now that I think about it if I had to live in a round room I would probably go crazy. That is bad for my feng shui. The video comes from the Saskatoon Parrot Rescue in Canada, which aims to better the lives of pet birds. You know, I feel like it's about time somebody should start a Geekologie Writer Rescue to better the lives of Geekologie Writers. "I thought it was only you." I need a lot of individual care. Is it time for my sponge bath yet? "What?" BATHE ME, CLEAN MY BOTTOM.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to mobuckets, who's always dreamed of being a pirate with a parrot on his shoulder that could finish his sentences with dirty words.

    Jay wants his bird back

    Did.... did that bird just say the N-Word..?

  • Ye know, several folks on the Yoitube page commented that as well, but I'm not sold. They're in Canadia, where I feel like that's not really common parlance...

    As a Canadian, I for one have never heard it in real life. Mind you, my circle of friends is not the type that would say such things, but Canada, except for some large cities, is largely void of black people.
    That said, the bird is copying language of its captors with an already colourful vocabulary or a nearby TV set, so anything is possible.

  • Valid point. Damned television...

    you should be more specific lots of word begin with the letter N

    he's referring to nagger

    I'm kind of upset for the bird, it's scary and loud when people break things - even for people much less animals that have highly sensitive senses. I kind of wanted to hug the bird and I don't even like birds because they carry parasites and can bite the crap out of you and are wicked smart. I mean, birds speak human and can communicate basic needs in human language to any human, even one they've never interacted with. That's more intelligent than any human can do - we can't go up to a random bird and have it understand us.

    it might be less embarrassing for you if you read more and typed less

  • Scott Malcolm

    " I mean, birds speak human"
    "Human" is a language?!
    You really don't understand Parrots, do you?
    For that matter, birds that are kept as pets do not suffer from parasites, as you believe.

  • Jenness

    I only understand the English speaking ones granted - but when Polly wants her cracker and looks at me with that beak that can bite off one of my perfect tits - Polly gets her fucking cracker and she don't complain.

    And I don't believe you on the parasites - even humans have microscopic parasites that live in our eyelashes. Everything has them - which is why I live in a hermetically sealed clean lab my mind.

  • Ollie Williams

    I demand proof of these so called "perfect tits", for scientific reasons, of course.

  • Scott Malcolm

    I don't care if you believe me or not, I know that I have the scars and marks as testament to my experiences with birds.
    Experience that you do not have.

  • Ollie Williams

    Word/sound association does not equal understanding of what the word means. I agree making a shit ton of noise was a dick move, especially for someone who works at a bird rescue, but the bird has no concept of what "fuck" means. It was taught to mimic sounds, that is all. You could just as easily associate the word "fuck" with food, and it'd say that in an attempt to get fed. The same goes for any language. I could tell you gato means hamburger in Spanish, and if you didn't have the technology or understanding to identify it as anything different, that's what you'd assume it means. And yes, we can't talk to birds, but we have the ability, just like birds, to associate sounds with things, like food. If birds were of higher intelligence than humans, fed us, and made a specific sound when being fed, we'd associate the bird sound with food.

    I wouldn't be to sure birds don't understand. Ravens are incredible problem solvers and tool makers. And large Macaws have shown sign of intelligence at the same level as the large apes like chimpanzees.

  • Jenness

    Ravens are terrifyingly intelligent. They have shown incredible aptitude for even generational memory and mass communications in several major experiments.

    Bird abuse, not a good thing.

  • GeneralDisorder

    You're right. He's not plucked, stuffed or baking in the oven.Dafuq is wrong with people?

  • Yes, if ye look up the story, that bird was rescued from an abusive home. Now he's a spokesbird for the bird rescue sanctuary. (Albeit, one with an amusing penchant for the f-word...)
