Now THAT sentence absolutely makes sense... Can someone please explain to me how a parrot can be deceitful??? Plus, I'd like to know how to get a bird drunk. Thanks

Bird drank some wine and became drunk. How the bird is being deceitful while being drunk is beyond me

Well, maybe the parrot accidentally gave away his owner's secret? Of course the bird didn't do it intentionally (since they don't understand human words they imitate), and the owner knows it but decides to joke about his parrot betraying him?
