THIS JUST IN: Hero Parrot Saves Choking Girl!

Capt037773325de745d0b19e56f7b32ee_2According to Yahoo News, the parrot pictured at the left saved the 'tocks of a choking girl by squawking: "Mama Baby! Mama Baby!" and flapping his wings until the babysitter returned to the room and gave the girl The Heimlich.

Awesome!

According to the report: "This undated image from video released by CBS4Denver, shows Willie, a Quaker parrot in Denver, Colo., whose cries of alarm alerted his owner when a little girl choked on her breakfast. Willie has been has been given the local Red Cross chapter's Animal Lifesaver Award."

In his honor are a couple more cute parrot shots. Above, a McBeakersons named Ivan, and below, two puffballs.

Casablanca, Penguin Version

My favorite part is always at the end — Rick sends a tearful Ilsa away with Victor Laszlo, as they board the plane to Lisbon and freedom.  Then, as he and Captain Renault walk slowly down the runway, Rick delivers the immortal closing line, "Waaacky, Wa waaak waack wa-waack waaacckwaack waack waaack wa-wa-waaacck wack-wack."

Well, I'll admit it loses something in the translation...

Here's looking at you, Betsy B.

My Private Torment

"I've tried to quit, honestly, I have.  Twelve-step programs, hypnosis, patches, pills, ointments, you name it.  But then I'll be out with the boys at a party, and someone starts passing around a... a... chicken, and it starts all over again."

Double the 'Tocks, Double the knobbules. [The Scroll Down]

I'm not sure if this pic is really cute or kinda gross. [Shifty eyes] I think it's a case of the photographer being RIGHT BEHIND this 'tocktacular scene... right!?
