    Being that Politics and Politicians are so previlent on TV Charlie wants more attention. So he tells me a true story about some famous politician's parrots.

    Seems they just found and confirmed Winston Churchills 104 year old parrot alive well and still yacking up a storm. The Blue & Gold Macaw recited all the common sqwacks and recited phrazes documented in Churchill's memoirs. The bird yelled out F*ck Hitler and Love Winnie and still ate 1/2 a hershies almond bar a day. Checked it out in Google and on MSNBC cable TV tonite.

    PS; Winston Churchill's birds name is Charlie..

    Mike & Charlie ...

    Sounds fishy to me.

    But, didn't Charlie have an uncle with the last name "Tuna"?

    I know, you are thinking, "De gaul of dat witch!"

    There's a couple of stories at the BBC - here and here. It looks like there's some debate over it being Churchill's parrot or not, but they seem happy with the fact that the bird is 104 years old.

    Just think.. Mike's Charlie could be shouting obscenities about parasite pushers for decades to come...

    Mocking Macaw...Winston Churchill's Former Foul-Mouthed Parrot Found Alive at 104


    L O N D O N, Jan. 20— British war leader Winston Churchill's foul-mouthed 104-year-old parrot refused to surrender to newshounds Monday after a British newspaper tracked the bird down and discovered it was still alive.

    Charlie, who kept Churchill company during World War II, was famous for occasionally squawking four-letter obscenities about Hitler. But Martin told Reuters the bird has mellowed.

    "He doesn't say very much anymore — usually just hello and goodbye. But he does get so excited about music and dances to it. He's very fit."

    Charlie — invariably referred to as "he" despite being female — is now owned by Peter Oram, the garden centre's owner, Martin said. Oram's father-in-law sold Churchill the bird and was asked to take it back after the prime minister died in 1965.
