This Heavy Metal Parrot Has Perfected Screamo

Let the birdies hit the floor!  I'm only half tempted to call this bird adorable, and even more tempted to call child protective services, or even an exorcist.

Heavy Metal Parrot

Either way, this heavy metal parrot would make a great circus intermission or at least a decent lead singer for Drowning Pool the next time he decides to go off and... anyways, here's the video!

Oh my god, that is so ridiculous.  "One, something's wrong with me.  Something's got to give."  He honestly nails it.  This bird even knows when the vocals change and get more screamo.

Parrot Intelligence

I actually read that these birds have an incredible intelligence although they can't easily communicate it to the rest of us.  The word on the street and in scientific journals is that the only animal to ever show that it was capable of introspective and existential thought was a parrot.  They were training it to sort blocks or plastic chips or something by color, and eventually it dawned on the bird to ask, "What color am I?"

That's pretty amazing, but I don't think that's the first time an animal has shown any existential thought pattern.  Elephants create graveyards and will travel great distances to die in them or move others into them after they've perished.  All types of animals recognize themselves in the mirror or mourn and recognize when their owners or friends have passed on.

It goes back to the same discussion where people tried to say animals can't feel rhythm.  Then the internet became a household utility and YouTube was invented and before you knew it we had thousands of videos of animals of all types dancing, especially birds.

We're Getting Too Serious

Look at this little birdie, though.  He sings so good.  He looks so delicious.  Maybe next time he'll sing (or be cooked with) parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.  Get it, because they're types of seasoning!

I bet this family is training the cat to play metal guitar in Drop D.  I hope he clipped his nails and got a really thick pick guard.  Don't be leaving marks on the fretboard!

The sad thing is, despite all his rage he is still just a feathered rat in a cage... I could do this all night, folks.  I'm a pretty funny guy once you learn to tolerate me.  I'm available for kid's parties and retiree events.

I'd still sling him across the room for being such an Angry Bird, though...

Sorry, I had to drop some really bad jokes to distract from how serious this post was getting.  I started to have my own existential angst.  What am I doing with my life?  Stay tuned!  Next up we have a video of a hamster on a piano!

If you liked this heavy metal parrot, check out the beatboxing dubstep bird, and the story of my friend's old exotic bird that learned to scream racist things any time someone would knock on the front door.  You ever heard of a several thousand dollar bird getting beat with a rolled up newspaper?  If not, you'll enjoy that story.
