Best Hangover Headline Evah: “Drunk parrots litter Australian town”

Via Don Surber, the best beat reporter on the Internet, who points us to the Malaysian Mirror:

“Hundreds of seemingly drunk parrots are falling out of trees and the sky in a northern Australian town, mystifying veterinary surgeons who are struggling to care for them. The brightly coloured lorikeets are showing classic signs of drunkenness by losing all coordination and passing out, and then cowering in cages as they recover from their hangovers.”


Pffft. Could happen to anybody:

"They fall out of trees... and they're not so coordinated as they would normally be. They go to jump and they miss the next perch."



Just be glad they're not seagulls. Seagulls are angry drunks:

I'm here looking at that pic again. That thing is so creepy-cool. Someone needs to make a plush-toy or a garden ornament or hell, a HOOD ORNAMENT -- something that looks like that -- for personal home use. I would buy!
