I Love You Gary!

Shame the owner's name was Chris.

The poor man's pet parrot told him about his wife's affair by saying "Hi Gary" when her mobile phone rang, and by making kissy smoochy noises whenever the name Gary was mentioned on the TV.

Here's the article.

Of course this resulted in divorce, and no I am not going to start squawking about who gave who the bird and whether they went up before the beak. I could, but I'm not that tragic.

On the other hand, if that's your style, be my guest......

That is a truly fantastic story! Shame I can't stand the birds really.

Never seen this parrot before in my life, anyway I am alergic to them....

I think the guy is pretty stupid for getting rid of the parrot.
He's on his own now with the next girlfriend!

African Greys are amazing birds. I bet it did it on purpose.

The most famous African Grey is Alex - read about him here.

I am so with writer mom on this, he should have kept old Ziggy.

But, hearing the name of the excrement head your chick messed you over with, ad nauseum would no doubt drive you mad for awhile.

He should have given Ziggy to a friend for TWO years--yep, I believe two years is the time healing magic number--and then whenever he heard the name Gary from the birds beak he would be saying, “Yes, thank you GARY.”

This cracked me up! Thanks for sharing! Maybe she should have stuck to a lover with the same name as her husband.....

Where do you find this stuff, I guess how would be a better. I can't blame her, if the man is the type to part with a pet she needed to find someone else.
