Who wouldn't want to sell a drunk and deceitful parrot, honestly?

The problem is finding a buyer.

I came here just for this kind of thread.

I would NOT sell a drunk and deceitful parrot. It would be entertaining to have one as a companion. Especially after the novelty of having a parrot who merely speaks wears off. Heck, in America, a drunk and deceitful parrot may run for President...and win! We've elected an actor and a craven, angry reality show flim flammer...and, horrors[!], drunk and deceitful politicians. Just sayin'. Our standards are not high. So...sell me your drunk, deceitful parrot, please! [But only if it does NOT have computer skills.] I will gladly pay for humane shipping...

I don't blame you. Your parrots are angry drunks and talk to dolls. Maybe you can trade them for a monkey's paw or something.

I'd sell those drunken, treacherous birds to get some relevant vocabulary in this course!

Is this a question, or a statement?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JennyRusse1

There’s no question mark, so presumably it’s a statement.

Lovely plumage!
