Enough with the parrots
I keep seeing sentences involving parrots as the antagonists in some sentences. Can we get some more evildoers or adversaries? We have about 2500 years of Latin history to pick from.
Duo does not like other birds. Duo gets nervous when they are around.

I guess the Latin course more than any other should celebrate, "Talk like a Pirate Day":
Parrots don't bother me, they are fun. The only flaw is that I tend to memorize the sentences with the drunk parrots, and I'd like more variety, or memorizing only idiomatic sentences.
Yes, I would prefer more sentences that teach me something, like paedogagus, garum, lararium, etc... and just a bit of weird animals for fun (but not always parrots, we could use it to learn other names.)
That's the only problem for me.
Maybe another problem too, it makes the forum fun and relaxed, but sometimes it also makes it flooded with joke.
I warn Latin course contributors: the course is very recent, but one day you will have a page with 10000 jokes (often all the same ones) about your parrot in the sentence. It happens on other courses.
