From the always wonderul Boing Boing
Dead Parrot sketch turns real, ends up in court. Monty Python’s Dead Parrot sketch has come to life and moved to Israel, wehre it is the subject of intense litigation:
An indignant Israeli is suing a pet shop that he says sold him a dying parrot, reports the Ma’ariv newspaper. Itzik Simowitz of the southern city of Beersheba contends the shop cheated him because the Galerita-type cockatoo not only failed to utter a word when he got it home, but was also extremely ill. Mr. Simowitz adds that the shop owner assured him the parrot was not ill but merely needed time to adjust to its new environment.
