Parrots on the Sauce
A population of parrots has been accused of acting drunk and disorderly in Australia. It is thought that the birds achieve this inebriated state by eating a plant with alcohol or toxins in it that have this affect on parrots. The birds got up to their tricks in the town of Palmerston on Friday night, making what residents described as an unholy “racket” and later eventually falling over just like a typical human drunk. The morning after is said to be very bad for the seriously hungover parrots, who can be sick for up to three days. Maybe that’ll be a lesson to them!
