Question: Why Does Anyone Pay Attention to Macaws?





Hi, hairy bird-loving primates! Today Keith wants to know:

Dear Marvin,

When I look for parrots on the internet, I always come up with pictures of Macaws rather than African Greys. What's the deal? Why are the Macaws more famous? Is it the bright candy coloring?

Keith, it is a mystery to me why anyone would want to look at any bird other than an African grey. More specifically, me.

Macaws eat fingers like candy, and although their owners think they can talk, everything they say sounds like "rock."

Examples:

African grey: "I want to poop in your hair."

Macaw: "Rock rock rock rock rock rock rock."


African grey: "I have no idea who ate the remote."

Macaw: "Rock rock rock rock rock rock rock rock."


African grey: "That will come off your shoe with a wet rag."

Macaw: "Rock rock rock rock rock rock rock rock etc."


Another problem with macaws is that, unlike obsolete cockatoos your owner keeps forgetting to throw out, they are a little large to put in the trash. Fortunately, they hold a lot of stuffing. I bet.

I attach a video. Now you may feed me.

I don't know, Marv...that macaw was one sexy bird!
(When I woke up today I really didn't think I would be typing the phrase "one sexy bird". Then again, I really didn't think I'd be commenting on a post written by an African grey parrot.)

I still worship you Marvin.
Are you a AM bird or a night bird?
Is your primate a night primate or a AM primate?
