Dead Parrot references trifecta in play?

There has to be a corpse-cicle joke here somewhere...

Nothing tastier than frozen yogi. Healthier than ice cream, too.

That's not how cryogenics works, you need the cool little glowing blue ball and the magic wand thingy.  Also, he's supposed to be naked.

So Apu went into the freezer instead of Jasper?

The corpse has potassium benzoate

"We thought of embalming it, but somebody told us that his chances of revival were less if we did it,"

And this way, there's no formaldehyde smell.

/Other smells, well....

Fortunately he's not related to Ted William's kids...

The sad part is that he came back to life two days ago, but he's frozen solid, so nobody noticed.

What kind of talk is that?

Keeping a freezer going in India? Good luck, there'll be a power outage within the week.

I am going straight to farking hell for this, but I honestly misread that as "Devotees of a dead Indian guru FEBREEZE his body..."

PININ' for the FJORDS?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did he fall flat on his back the moment I got 'im home? 'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This guru is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker!

I read somewhere that during a US tour, John Cleese forgot one of his lines, so he looked to the audience and said "What is it?"  Half the audience shouted out the line and Cleese carried on.  Later, he wondered that if everyone knew the sketch better than he did, why was he doing it any more?  Because great comedy never gets old, John.

I've got a nice cuttlefish for him when he wakes up.

"OMG, this woman is  dead!"
"I thought she was Jewish."

/heard in Catskills

Since I said this yesterday, why not today as well?!

Most people miss this but when the pet shop owner says the parrot is, "...pining for the fjords" he means the parrot is a "Norwegian blue" (yes, he's just making that up) and it's sad it's not in Norway anymore.
