    An item about the landlord's performing parrot at The Crown and Sceptre.

    Landlord, Reg Cook stands behind the bar serving two customers - his pet parrot is lying on its back on the bar. C/U of the parrot. Reg picks up the parrot by one of its feet - the bird hangs upside down. Reg shows the customers how he can hold the parrot by its claws and beak. Reg gets the parrot to cling onto the pencil - he then spins the bird over and over. The parrot then perches on Reg's hand and picks up a bottle of beer with its beak.
