Crackers

A parrot saved a father and his 9 year old son when their house caught fire by imitating a smoke alarm. Peanut the parrot roused them from their sleep by mimicking the bleeping of an alarm and they managed to escape to safety.

If the parrot was that clever, why didn't it just "Oi, get up- the house is on fire"?

  1. it is claimed that monkeys could speak if they had appropriate vocal organs and slightly changed brain structure, but just to make their speech understood by the human.
    why the parrot couldn't?
    i heard that Churchill's parrot living long after owner's death still repeated bad-languaged adjectives connected with hitler in early 80s..
