Parrot Argument Caught on Tape


Video has surfaced of parrots in Brooklyn’s Greenwood Cemetery (the same birds that make an appearance in Joseph O’Neill’s Netherland) getting extremely boisterous over the weekend. Though it’s hard to make out what they’re chattering about, we have it on good authority that some of the parrots feel that Obama made too many concessions during the stimulus negotiations, while others believe such claims are merely contrivances of a mainstream media looking for a new story line where one doesn’t exist.
