"I love you Gary"

Stupid woman should have paid attention to that advert a while back... :rolleyes:

 

From PA:

 

An African grey parrot named Ziggy revealed his owner's girlfriend was having an affair behind his back, it was reported today.

Ziggy squawked "I love you, Gary" as his owner, Chris Taylor, sat with girlfriend Suzy Collins on the settee of their shared flat in Headingley, Leeds.

But when Mr Taylor saw Ms Collins's embarrassed reaction, he realised she had been having an affair - meeting her lover in the flat whilst Ziggy looked on.

Ziggy even mimicked Ms Collins's voice each time she answered her telephone, calling out "Hiya Gary", according to reports.

Call-centre worker Ms Collins, 25, admitted the four-month affair with a colleague called Gary to her boyfriend and left the flat she had shared with Mr Taylor, 30, for a year.

But Mr Taylor, a computer programmer, was also forced to part with Ziggy after the bird continued to call out Gary's name and refused to stop squawking the phrases in his ex-girlfriend's voice, the reports said.

"I wasn't sorry to see the back of Suzy after what she did, but it really broke my heart to let Ziggy go," he said.

"I love him to bits and I really miss having him around, but it was torture hearing him repeat that name over and over again."

Mr Taylor acquired Ziggy as a chick eight years ago and named him after the David Bowie character Ziggy Stardust.

The bird has now found a new home through the offices of a local parrot dealer.

Ms Collins, who admitted the affair, said: "I'm not proud of what I did but I'm sure Chris would be the first to admit we were having problems."

You're not wrong love. Anyone who buys a stupid pet and names it after a pop star has got problems.

Gravy will be after you for that

 

Anyone who names his bulldogs 'Digger' and 'Meathead' isn't likely to put his head over the parapet... :D
