my coworker today was telling me about her parrot. she inherited it, and she really wouldn’t recommend a parrot, because it’s like a perpetual two year old. she said people think it’s cute to teach parrots to swear but now she has a long-lived animal in her house that just repetitively shouts fuck…

My dad’s a bird person who would love a parrot and I’m like why. I wanted him to get some rescue parrots when this parrot shelter in RI closed but he feels too guilty cuz he’s almost sixty and what if he does before the bird does? I felt like I should offer to take it but the only parrot I ever met was mean and hated me.

She did belong to my moms salvia smoking gf w the matching tattoo tho. Maybe an unbiased parrot would be ok.

i can’t really decide if parrots are a step up or step down from cockatiels, in terms of the “danger of becoming a weird bird person” hierarchy

my friend’s dad got cockatiels when he reached some kind of “i give up” age of life and they just swoop and attack anybody who comes into the house and otherwise nestle in his beard chewing as he falls asleep during golden girls. i guess he’s happy tho

I just gut cackled for like five minutes.

Idek or understand what triggers bird personage. Like my dad used to be totally normal and now he’s a bird person! Whenever he visits me he almost gets into accidents cuz he’s too busy scoping birds and wondering which are ravens and which are crows (“the ones that say nevermore” didn’t cut it apparently)

so i once was talking to this friend of a friend who glommed onto me briefly (she was weeeeeeeeird and intense and lived for attempting to spend fleeting moments with nick cage after bad seeds concerts), and she was a weird parrot person. there were other warning signs of weirdness that i was overlooking because hey maybe this is a new friend but then i said offhand one day that somebody or other was “parroting” something they had heard on the news and she launched into a severely pedantic “actually it’s really inaccurate when people use ‘parrot’ like that because parrots don’t just repeat things, they are highly complex and blah blah blah” and i’m sorry, @clarawebbwillcutoffyourhead, but i think she might have been from portland, if memory serves me right. it is, after all, a place on earth.

omg flagrant birdpression tbh.

We here in Portland have a lot of causes, like “keeping Portland weird!” And “keeping Portland beered” (they’re doing good on that front we have as many microbrew pubs as we have Starbucks I think, something I have complained about before) and “keep Portland queer!” (Ok)

Just bc birdpression hasn’t yet got a bumper sticker don’t take it not seriously. I am feel uncomfortable when we are not about bird.

has there been research on why puns cause rage

i mean i know they don’t for everybody but i am one of those people where the puns create the immediate I TRUSTED YOU HOW COULD YOU reaction and i don’t even understand why, there has to be some kind of name for this curious reaction in the psychology journals

coachmcguirkscowtattoo said: how do you even research that though like its a great topic but it seems really hard to do

presumably some pun-telling asshole researchers will just drag participants into a room and tell them puns until one lunges across the table at them

then you hook that one up to an mri

i found a book called “the pun also rises” and i bet it has some info on this but i can’t read it because the title makes me want to track down that author and shake him till he drools

i’m on google scholar right now and this is the downfall of this area of research, the researchers cannot resist filling the titles of the articles and the text with five thousand fucking puns and i can’t even research this without snarling I GET IT OKAY PUNISHMENT HAS PUN IN IT WE PUNISH THE PUNSTER HA HA HA HA HA WOW SO CLEVER

honestly you might hate me, I have yet to write a paper without a pun for a title.

Wait no. I did one on early 20th c Jewish lit that was straightfwd but it wasn’t for lack of trying.

my boyfriend is a punner and i just don’t understand why there is this cognitive difference, where for him puns are a “hey-o!!!!” phenomena and for me they are like “I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN YOU” brief but intense rage. like how cilantro tastes like soap to my boyfriend, puns taste like instamurder to me

puns are such a joy. This really is like cilantro. Something totally inexplicable and baffling and sad. What is this emotion I’m feeling? Sad, for another person?

ok but the best is when I was finishing at four am one time and my paper was on Byron and the title was “shall we let Byrons be Byrons” and I wrote Byrons be bryons and it was awful.

i have come to understand that my place in the world is to provide sincere joy to the people who love puns because i know it only accentuates the humor when a pun-hater turns bright red with “DID YOU JUST” and oh my god, @clarawebbwillcutoffyourhead, let byrons be byrons, did you just, i can’t, i ugh no oh god how could you

at one point she called home to talk to her husband about something and then started laughing uproariously. she put the phone on speaker so i could hear. her parrot loves nothing more in the world than to take little showers. so it was the sound of her parrot showering, and he was just exclaiming with joy, the type of sounds that would come out of our mouths if a slot machine dumped enough money to pay off our student loans and then some. it was just a parrot going, “oh god! oh yes! yes i’m just so excited! ha ha ha! i can’t believe it! ohhhhhhhhh my! yes! ha ha! wowwwwwwww!!!!!”
