4th March 2004Bad Language
By Clive Dickens
I hope this does not appear too off topic but no doubt most would have read that a parrott was to be put off limits for a visit for HM THE Queen due to it's bad language, this parrott also has another line in it's speech and it is apparently as follows "The Zulu's are coming" followed by" P+++ Off". so at least we have some naval personel. interested in the events of 1879.

According to the Daily Mail it was "Zulus, thousands of 'em" so he must have been a fan of James Booth's portrayal of Hookie.
