Friday Fluff: Dancing Cockatoo

This finally made Cute Overload today, so you’ve probably all seen it already, but when Al and I watched this the other night, we were fucking crying, it was so good. And seriously, even if you think you’ve seen enough, you have to wait for the big finish.

Please enjoy this delightful antidote to trolls and Penelope Trunk (who shall henceforth be known as “Penelope Trunk, Slytherin House,” thanks to Fillyjonk).

  1. Oh, my gosh, has that bird got rhythm!! It even knew when to take a bow. Oh, my.

    Thanks for the tear-causing belly laugh. Tbat made my morning.

  2. I read about this little dude in the paper today, and I thought “eh, that sounds reasonably funny, maybe I’ll look it up.” I did not expect it to make me literally cry with laughter.

    I know! Al was like, “You have to check this out!” and I was like, “Dancing bird? Meh.” Then I peed myself like 8 times while watching it.

    I have to admit, the Backstreet Boys kinda make it for me. I would not voluntarily listen to them in any other context, but the cockatoo is just so fucking into the song, it makes me love it.

  4. According to the AP tidbit in the paper, the guy who gave him to the bird-rescue shelter included the CD.

    Speaking of AP, we ever get that Reuters mention?

  5. Oh, and I just realized what I linked to is an abbreviated version — which is plenty to get the point across, but the one Al and I watched lasted for the entire song, and the little guy just kept going which made it even more priceless.

  6. Oh my god, it’s great! I think I will not have to use my AK today.

    Incidentally, my disinterest in food and the fact that literally everything I eat gives me terrible stomach cramps right now has dropped me into the Stage 1 obese category as of last weekend. Good to know I’m gettin’ healthier! Those three pounds were the unhealthy pounds.
