Bird Fancier's Lung

Better than Gerbil Fancier's Arse, I suppose.

"My mother never handled him, nobody could because he was so vicious. He would peck you to death and he would draw blood. Whoever cleaned him would have to wear gloves."

That sounds like one...

*puts on sunglasses*

...angry bird.

My grandma and her husband, Art, had an African Grey parrot named Petey. They also owned two huge Dobermans. They lived in rural upstate NY way back in a cul-de-sac. On the very rare occasions someone drove past their house, the Dobies would spring in to action, running out to the deck, barking their guts out.

As they ran past Petey's cage, Petey would yell, 'HEY! GET BACK IN HERE! SHUT THE FARK UP! HEY, HEY GODDAMINT"  in Art's voice...that was the funniest thing I'd ever heard in my 10-year old life.

Death by budgie
A budgie breeder may have been killed by the droppings from his flock of 200 birds.

It has been too long since I watched Hitchcock's The Turds

The 84-year-old grandmother was later diagnosed with the little-known disease Bird Fancier's Lung.

Yeah, that's something I'd rather not have in my obituary.

I read that as "cocktail" and thought that old women need to realize they can't drink like they could when they were fifteen.

The grandmother's death in November 2011 was at first thought to be due to industrial disease

Dr. Parkinson declared:
"I'm not surprised to see you here.
You've got smoker's cough from smoking,
Brewer's droop from drinking beer.
And I don't know how you came to have
that 'Bette Davis' wheeze but
worst of all, young man,
you've got industrial disease!"

I'm sorry, but the real mystery is how an unusual tale like this ends up on the International Business Times page....
