Today I gone to Hampton Court. Didn’t seen much. Just a bunch of old stuff. And some Tudor tits.

Only interesting birds I seen was some mistle thrushes and some a few lots of ring-necked parakeets.

When I think about having friends I often think that they ask me about ring-necked parakeets so here is all about them.

The word “parakeet” comes from the old English for “a pair of Keiths” for obvious reasons.

Obvious reasons.

Obvious reasons.

They originally come from the Africa at the foot of the Alps. They came to England on the Viking narrow-boats because the Vikings wanted to give us a gift before they took control of the BT Tower in London and got our trains running on time. Unfortunately they all escaped before we could turn them into darts for playing darts in pub darts tournaments which meant the invention of darts by Isaac Newton had to be put off until we could get some budgies shipped in. This is why darts is a bit smaller than it would have been if it hadn’t been so small. All parakeets are benefits fraudsters and only came over here for free gender realignment on the NHS. Most of them are called  “Poitier” after Sidney Poitier because they love the film “To Sir With Love” which they occassionally confuse with “Please, Sir.” That is all there is to know about ring-necked parakeets thank you the end.
