The Giant Dead Parrot

Giant_dead_parrot_unveiled_in_London_to_pay_tribute_to_Monty_Python

A 50 foot fibreglass bird was hung upside down by a crane at London’s Potters Fields to mark the TV screening of Monty Python’s live show.

The world famous dead parrot sketch, in which John Cleese attempts to return a deceased “Norwegian Blue” parrot to a pet shop, features in the current Monty Python Live (mostly) farewell show.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
