Never thought I'd see a Ace Attorney reference on Duolingo

OK THE SOLDIERS SHOULD BE HITTING THIS GIRL AND NOT THE LAZY COOK THIS IS A WORSE CRIME

Is this the drunk and deceitful parrot who makes songs?

I can tell right now, this is going to be the "Pictores picturas pulchras pingunt" of this lesson.

It hit her first.

In the parrot's defense, it was drunk

No! Don’t hit the drunk parrot!

Perhaps that's why the poor animal gets drunk?

Horrible girl! This reminds me of "Cajas de cartón." Has anybody read that?

It's an easy read in Spanish by by Francisco Jiménez. Spoiler alert: the part that most disturbed me is when his father is in a bad mood and beats their family parrot. The parrot dies. :(

Well, from what I've heard, they're both pretty deceitful...but, like Jack Sparrow says " A dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you have to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly...stupid":)
