Step one: Buy 100 budgies.
Step two: Teach them to recite Drew's address, along with "fark the pigs!"
Step three: Release them in Lexington.

In my mind I imagine the budgie slowly repeating it's address in a thick male Japanese accent.

Ah one of my favorite sketches in one of my favorite episodes.

Though I think it was Mrs. Premise and Mrs. Conclusion. With a cameo by Mrs. Cutout.

American seed bells sooo big. Japanese seed bells very tiny.

No, you shouldn't do that - no, that's dangerous. They *breed* in the *sewers*!

Subby was right about Mrs Essence! Now I'm going to have to watch the whole series again as penance.

I'm not that surprised. People who's long time pet bird escapes the house often sit outside the house and wait for the family to come outside.

Kids end up retrieving their pet from their own school yard during recess because it followed them to class.

African Greys are cool, but budgies can develop just as large a vocabulary if the bird chooses to.
My budgies have no interest in mimicking me at all, but my conure is picking up on sounds after only 5 weeks.

Had several budgies as a kid, but none of them ever talked. Maybe that's a good thing.

"We had not expected his owner to be identified in this manner," one of the officers involved in the case said.

How colorful and insightful.

I see that I'm not the only one who immediately understood the prank potential here.

Who teaches their birds to talk these days? Don't most birds prefer to twitter?

Does that make it an ex-budgie?

I had to nail it to the perch to keep it from pushing up the dasies.

I remember as a kid buying one of these birds and they were called "parakeets" at the pet store. Turns out that budgies are just one type of parakeet. Thanks, Wikipedia.

My budgie story: Bird never talked, but we suspected that he was a serial killer. No fewer than three or four different mates died in the same cage with the bird over a period of several years, even though none of the other birds showed any sign of illness prior to expiring, and all of the mates died at night. Honestly the bird didn't even seem to care when we saw the cage in the morning. Same bird managed somehow to pick the simple latch lock on the cage, and raise the cage door. After some excitement and likely some serious bird doo on the curtains, bird was rounded up and put back in its cage. Thereafter, it never made another escape attempt. Indeed, a few times the cage door was accidentally left open and the bird shut it. Intelligent and creepy as hell I tell you....

A lost budgie was taken home after it recited its entire address in full to a police officer.

That's some fine journalism work there, Telegraph. Didn't you guys invent this language?

If anybody wants to know the proper way to put a budgie down, I've just read a big book on subject. Apparently you can hit them with the book or shoot them dead just above the beak.

I'm here to help.

Huh. . .(scratches head) looks like a flippin' parakeet to me.

My mom had a series of parakeets.

They all hung themselves.

Now THAT's CREEPY.

It's ok, he had a sammich and some gatorade in between. It's not like budgies have too many electrolytes in them to begin with.
