"I have a drunk and deceitful parrot."
Translation:Psittacum ebrium et perfidum habeo.
Learning a language should include getting you prepared to understand a fable... Otherwise, you wouldn't understand why a Tortoise and a Hare are running such an unequal race, or what does a Magic Mirror have to say about who is the fairest lady in the Kingdom. A speaking parrot can be deceitful when repeating what someone said out of context. In a fable, it may do that on purpose.
Fermenting apples , berries, or other fruits can intoxicate animals, including birds. They may also drink some sweet juice with alcohol. They may get drunk and this may be on it own harmful to their health, or by leaving them dangerously impaired as to be an easy prey or get involved in a car accident or a street fight.
