I think I mentioned awhile back that Joe had taught Weegie to say "Weegie's
a nutter". Now he's taught him "Hello Joe, oh great one"!

Anything Joe says, this parrot will repeat. I can spend DAYS trying to
teach him something new, and Joe walks up and says "Hello Joe, oh great one"
and that's all it takes <g>.

Apparently this is quite normal in the "model/rival" theory of parrot
behavior. Weegie sees Joe as a rival for my affections, and wants to prove
to me that he is every bit as smart and can repeat anything Joe says.

I wish Linda's parrot was like that. All he wants to do is bite me...
