Wow. No mention of the birds' owner?

" Help ! Help, doughnuts ! " beings the police.

One wonders what kind of home life would teach a parrot to learn these particular words.

My cat used to call the police and fire department with crank calls. I had to cut the phone priveledges.

She immediately perked up and started to imitate the sounds of the sirens.

Firemen then turned the hose on the cantankerous polly.

If my house burns (again), my new smoke detectors scream "Fire! Fire! Fire!" I warned the chief that there are no resting parrots.
