Latin is.... funny
So far, I have heard some pretty funny latin sentences. like, "I drank a deceitful parrot"!!! I love learning latin!! Duolingo is so helpful!! Thank you!
I don't remember anyone drinking a parrot in the Latin course, but I might be wrong.
It's far more likely someone would hurl thunderbolts at the parrot, and miss because the parrot would be drunk and staggering around all over the place.
I blame the weasels. It was their job to clean the toilets, so I'm told.
In actual fact, all the themes in the Latin course - at least, all the ones I noticed - are found in the writings of authors from the Classical period of Rome. Not least the parrots and their liking for alcohol.
Particular references to various creatures mentioned can be found in the writings of Pliny the Elder, a great writer about natural history, who would have written a lot more if he hadn't been so single-minded about investigating nature and natural phenomena that he went to investigate the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD, the eruption that destroyed Pompeii - and Pliny.
