PARROT FIRED FOR MOUTHING OFF

A blue and gold parrot was fired from his job at a British zoo Monday after embarrassing parents and children with his foul language.

Bluey, a long-tailed macaw named for his brilliant color and not his explicit language, was part of a six-strong parrot show at the Isle of Wight zoo until he told visitors in no uncertain terms exactly what to do.

"Bluey was previously owned by a sailor. I don't know if that is where he got his bad language," said zoo manager Jack Corney.
