the parrot has plenty to say

A foul-mouthed parrot previously owned by a lorry driver has been banished from public areas in a British animal sanctuary after repeatedly embarrassing his keepers, they said.
Barney, a five-year-old Macaw, is now kept indoors at Warwickshire Animal Sanctuary for abusing dignitaries with swearword-littered insults.
"He's told a lady mayor to f*** off and he told a lady vicar: 'And you can f***off as well'," sanctuary worker Stacey Clark said.
Nor did the forces of law and order escape,"Two policemen came to have a look at the centre. He told them: 'And you can f*** off you two wankers'."
Clark said sanctuary workers believed Barney picked up the phrases from television or was taught them by his previous owner, a lorry driver who emigrated to Spain.
"He does say 'Hello, big boy' and 'Thank you' when you give him a biscuit," she added.
"But it's mainly naughty words and always to the wrong people. We're trying to teach him not to swear. Macaws are very intelligent birds."
