Watch a Parakeet Trying to Say “Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition” [VIDEO]

Meet Disco. Disco has a pretty big vocabulary for a parakeet. “Hamburger” is among the words he can say. So is “cheeseburger.” Dirty Dancing quotes? Disco’s on that. But “inquisition”… well, that one’s a bit tougher.

Real Birds Tweet With Their Own Twitter Account, Are More Interesting Than You [VIDEO]

When we first got my cat Dewey, he had a tendency to walk on my keyboard. I was surprised one day to find replies to my twitter stream asking if I was OK. Turns out, Dewey had sent a tweet on my behalf of complete gibberish thanks to me leaving Tweetdeck open. And it wouldn’t be the last time. But conceptual artist  Voldemars Dudums decided to let some animals tweet on purpose, namely birds. Which couldn’t be more perfect considering Twitter’s mascot. How did he do it? He set up a Twitter account for them, @hungry_birds, and rigged a keyboard with snacks of pork fat. They now have over 5,000 followers. Watch them in action but make sure to pay attention to what Dudums says near the end of the video about the rest of us Twitter users. You can learn more at BirdsOnTwitter.com.

The Crazy Mass Bird Deaths Are Back! (Probably Because It’s 2012 and We’re All Gonna Die)

Last year, thousands of blackbirds have fallen down dead in an Arkansas town without any real explanation, except for, maybe, fireworks. And now, in that same town, a few dozen more blackbirds have fallen down dead — except this year, police banned fireworks on New Year’s Eve. Oh, wait — people were shooting off fireworks, anyway? So, yeah, the reason might be fireworks again. Not the apocalypse. Even though there will be plenty of people blaming the apocalypse, it will probably just be New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Quentin Tarantino Is Suing True Blood Creator Over His Loud, Exotic Birds

If you’re taking Quentin Tarantino to Disney World, do not take him to the Tiki Room.

As we speak, a potentially epic legal battle is taking place between violence-loving director Quentin Tarantino and some exotic birds. Namely, exotic birds belonging to the creator/director of True Blood and Six Feet Under, Alan Ball. Why, do you ask, is Tarantino waging war on Alan Ball’s birds? Because of their “obnoxious pteradactyl-like screams”! Don’t you hate those?
