I'm wondering if the famous drunk parrot is Duolingo's green bird.

Sorry, it's well known that Duo is a green owl. Personally, I'm wondering what the drunk parrot did?

You ever write a song so bad that people everywhere hit you for it?

It claimed to be a green owl, that's what it did.

Duo psittacus non est, sed strix

Serves him right for being drunk...or does it serve the cook right that he's angry and makes his parrot drink to deal with him?

Parrots get drunk off of fermented nectar and fruit, in case you were wondering

This sentence makes me cringe. Couldnt it have been a drunk soldier? The ones that hit the cook cause he was lazy? So much aggression :(
