Fids Say The Darnedest Thing!

These are so funny and too cute!
My Kiwi calls me Mimi and yells for me...sort of quiet at first, then louder and louder. If I don't answer her, she yells "WHAT, KIWI!"
She barks like the tiny Poodle her previous owner had and cries like a day-old human baby. When she cries, Bo laughs hysterically!
When my Blue Front was alive, she yelled "Boatwreck" if something scared her.
She hated my DH, but when he had food, she 'd say "Oooooh, you're a pretty girl" and fly down off her perch to have some of it. He called her a hypocrite. She had a HUGE vocabulary.
Debra Kerr, the actress, had a yellow nape and a DoubMexY Head. One would say "Come on over Darlin' and the other immediately answered "Don't you darlin' ME!"
hi the other day I wanted to wash the Kitchen floor so I moved all my birds into the living room I no sooner got the mop and bucket out and I hear a voice coming from the living room saying comin play with me comin play with me I looked through the door way and there was Fergie looking right at she said it agai comin play with me so being the doting mama that I am I went and played with her needless to say my floor didn't get washed until later on in the afternoon when Fergie had her afternoon nap[

Also one day I was in the bedroom folding clothes with my DH, I thought Maj had already went to sleep but the next thing I know I heard myself laughing. DH said if I wasn't sititng next to him quiet he would have sworn I was in the other room laughing histerically.
And this one wasn't my baby but I used to visit this Animal rescue quite often, it was a "Zoo/Animal rescue" All the animals there were either hurt in some way and couldn't be released back into the wild or something along those lines. So they opened it to the public so the money could help pay for their care and food etc. Anyway they had this huge red mccaw who at one time had belonged to a fire dept I guess or lived near a fire dept. The zoo was set up out in the open so smoking was allowed in designated areas which happened to be near the mccaw area. Anyway "Archie" as his name plack displayed piped up one day when I was there with my ex who was a smoker and had just light up "WHERE'S THE FIRE" and let out this SCREEEECH. OMG I laughed for days about that bird.

ok, louie the QP just started to talk. i call his name and he answers, "whaaat?" sometimes goofy the CAG will make a noise and louie will say, "whaat?"
goofy, on the other hand, is a chatterbox. we were warned when we got him that he knew the f word. well the other day my daughter was home (snow day) and apparently goofy was moving around his cage and bonked his head on a toy. he called it a f-er. yesterday he was in his cage and just unleashed the f-er about 10 times in a row. i had to tell him that was inappropriate...
yesterday i was in another room and i heard him say, "there ya go. i love you." then a smoochie sound. another time he positioned his bottom off the edge of his cage door then pooped. right after that, he said, "uh oh"
my fave tho, is whenever the cat comes around and goofy is out, he gives the cat the stinkeye and makes a fart noise.

"go potty" AFTER he has already pooped
"Don't be ugly" when he is not minding
"Don't bite mama"
Bedtime ritual is of course "nite nite" then "mama loves Boo","Boo loves mama", The list goes on and on. I am usually in a wheel chair. Occasionally when I'm standing or walking I will trip and fall. Boo makes the most horrific sounds like sceaming and saying oooooo and no noooo nooooooo. While I am pulling myself back into the chair he has sound effects going on that sound like someone is dying. I think he watches too much television.

Smartie comes out with some corkers!
My cockatiel lands clumsily off her cage: Smartie says "Ouch!"
He can say "Ya dumb birrd", then after a moment's pause, "GOOD birrd".
When I was trying to teach him monkey sounds. After my best rendition he looked at me for a moment then announced, "You're funny!"
My son was holding him and some Chinese girls walked past chatting in their language and Smartie started copying them and then laughed! My anti-racist son was extremely embarrassed.
The funniest one is his impersonation of a cow having just eaten a sour blackberry. It's hilarious! I wish I could video it. It came about because I was showing him the blackberries near our house. I ate one first and it was so sour I flinched backwards. For some reason it only took one look at me to "get" to him. The next one I offered him, he flinched back dramatically then swooned sideways one way and then the other. It was very funny. Every blackberry he tried had him doing this little hammy routine. Well the next thing was we turned around and there was a cow standing behind us. Then the cow gave a series of moos. Smartie mooed as well. The next blackberry I offered him began with the reeling, swooning routine and finished with a neck-stretched-forward "Mmmrrrrrrr!" He does it regularly now and it's always such a laugh. It's even funnier when you know that he actually IS being a cow having just eaten a sour blackberry.

Well My two favriot things that Sam (my bird) says is when I leave the room I say "Good Bye" and he copys me. Then one day befor I even had a chance to say it he said "Good bye" Then when I was about to praise him he interupted me and said "good Boy"
The second one is not that funny to me but it makes others laugh he would bite me and say "Good boy" and let out a evil laugh.

I think the funniest thing Dodger says is whenever Shelby or Sebastion say "Hello" He quickly replies with "Goodbye" Or he always tells the dog "Sonny, go lay down" even when the dog is nowhere in sight. He will also call himself a "silly green chicken" LOL silly fids...................

Well, I have my back to Rufus, when I start hearing Rufus whistle "Pretty bird", whom a friend of mine taught Rufus while we were talking over Ventrilo. Told me it was the easiest thing for them to learn, and taught it to Rufus in 15 minutes... Was hysterical!
So, anyway... Rufus starts doing that, then out of nowhere screams "Come on, Come on... COME ON!" I nearly freaked out! I quickly stopped brushing my teeth, and began laughing hahaha

The other day, I was visiting with my FID, Seamus. We were having a really bad thunderstorm and the shop owner said, "while you're here, I'm gonna go next door and get lunch". When she opened the door, there was a huge bolt of lightning and a loud clap of thunder. Pat said, "I'm gonna make a run for it". I was in the back room with Seamus (trying to bond!) and all of a sudden, I heard Pat's B/G Macaw say, "uh-oh". (I'd never heard Archie talk, but people had told me that she talked all the time!). I said , "hi Archie". She said, "she's gone!!" I said, "Archie, are you ok?" Archie said, "uh-oh" again. It was so funny. She forgot that I was in the back room with Seamus, and that she was alone, so she started talking! When I answered back, it's almost like she was embarrassed, and had been caught "talking"! I can't believe that these creatures are so smart!
The other story, is...last week I made one of my visits to see Seamus. When I opened the door of the bird store, I'm face to face with a BEAUTIFUL Yellow Crested Amazon. She says, "hello"! (while lifting one of her wings!) I tell her , "hello, you're such a pretty bird"! She spreads her tailfeathers and says, "thank-you!" We all started laughing and she imitated her owner's laugh EXACTLY!!! Then the owner started telling us how she'll (Lobo) will re-create phone conversations she's had. Lobo will say, "yeah...ok....yeah....whatever you decide.." I am so amazed at this!! I love these animals!

One time, Midori was being super bad, screaching so loud i had to take him outside. Usually, i never, ever get mad at midori, but i was really fed up so i yelled at the top of my lungs, "BIRDY!!". Midori looked at me and i said, "Your alright." Midori leaned real close to my face and said, "your alright" in my exact voice.
Currently we are trying to teach him Hello, and to laugh when i say Ha Ha, yet i cant seem to get him to talk when i talk to him, he just talks randomly.
