    Talking and singing parrots in training for a contest - the latest craze!

  • Description

    Titles read: "POLLIES!"

    Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.

    Various shots of two talking parrots in training for a parrot contest - the latest craze, so commentator informs us. The first one answers questions from an oriental man, telling us his name is John, and when he goes out with society girls he makes whoopee. The parrot imitates the sound of a banjo being played.

    A female parrot called Adela sings a little song. When the commentator says "You can't sing!" the parrot says "You're a liar!".
