In the USA we worry about the NSA tapping our calls, faxes and emails. In the UK, it seems the new thing to fear is … talking parrots.
Talking parrot gives away girlfriend’s secret lover: At first, 30-year-old Mr Taylor was amused when Ziggy started screeching “Hiya, Gary” everytime it heard Miss Collins’s mobile phone ring.
He even saw the funny side when the parrot began making kissing noises when the same name was mentioned on television or radio.
But the truth finally dawned as the couple snuggled alongside one another on the sofa and Ziggy blurted out, “I love you, Gary” in her voice.
What I wonder, assuming this isn’t another one of those great British journalistic hoaxes, is how the Telegraph got the story.
