My brother-in-law had a neighbor who took in rescue birds. She had a cockatiel that had paralysed wings and legs. It would get around the apartment by hooking her beak in the rug and dragging her body around.

The woman taught the bird to say, "I've fallen and I can't get up!"

Except people usually say "pretty bird"... instead of "pretty boy" to their birds. Headline is stupid and fail.
