You do not wash the parrot in whiskey.

Maybe the parrot will finally sober up from having cold fresh water all over it..

No, actually parrots love showering. But you're a cat. "In aqua felem lavatis." "Feles irata."

    “You was a parrot in water” is marked down for using the wrong word (“was”) rather than a typo. I’m rather amused by the image of a Cockney saying “Oy mate, you was a parrot in water”. Rhyming slang gone mad.

    In aqua vitae psittacum lavatis. Nunc psittacus ebrius est.

    Could one possibly wash the parrot with/by means of water? Psittacum aqua lavas.
