A parrot pining for the fjords is a terrible thing to see so I can understand him being distraught

/ lovely plumage

I watched the clip a couple times.  Where was the near death experience?

I have birds. They're awesome.

I know cyclists. They're usually pretty terrible.

I feel like I'm in the wrong on this but...

I must have missed something. Where did the cyclist almost die?

"Pinin' for the fjords?"

This would never have happened if in the first place the driver had bought the slug instead.

If thats 'almost kills' a cyclist, then I almost get killed 100 times each time I ride my bike.

'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!

Hard to judge distance on camera, but if that's what counts as unsafe over there, I'm going to have to move.  Looked like it was close to 3 feet, which is the legal minimum here.

Article headline "Driver cuts up cyclist"

Can someone translate this to English? And if so maybe it will give this song a whole new meaning.

Does it even count if a cyclist is involved? This is FARK after all.

Most people miss this but when the pet shop owner says the parrot is "pining for the fjords" he means because the parrot is supposed to be a "Norwegian blue" it's sad it's not in Norway anymore.

If he hadn't of nailed that bird down, it would have muscled up to those bars, bent it apart with its beak, and FOOOM!

Did anyone get a good look at the cyclist?
2014-03-13 03:26:29 PM  
I've never held a sick parrot but I have handled a healthy cockatoo.

MaritimeGirl: I must have missed something. Where did the cyclist almost die?

Cyclist butthurt can be fatal.

Maybe he was using one of those cars from 'Death Race 2000':

PS, good song, and Peter Murphy's quite a nice guy in person (he was signing stuff at the front of the venue when I saw him on the 'Dust' tour).
