Two birds with one stone

You know you are in trouble when your pet parrot calls out another guy's name. Time to get rid of the girlfriend (and the parrot).

The African grey parrot kept squawking "I love you, Gary" as his owner, Chris Taylor, sat with girlfriend Suzy Collins on the sofa of their shared flat in Leeds, northern England.

But when Taylor saw Collins's embarrassed reaction, he realized she had been having an affair -- meeting her lover in the flat whilst Ziggy looked on, the UK's Press Association reported.

I am stating for the record that I do not now, nor have I ever, owned an African grey parrot.

You will note my extraordinary restraint in not pointing to the commonality of name. But then I could not imagine you owning anything but a trained watch-parrot.

Well, if I ever get a yard big enough, it will be a pair of Doberman pinschers, named -- naturally -- Zeus and Apollo.
