Polly Want A Cracker?

A cracker? No, Polly wants to have an English vocabulary of 950 words, to be able to distinguish and use correctly past, present, and future verb tenses, to invent new words when Polly come across concepts she doesn't have words for already, and to tell jokes.

If that talking bird can get subject/verb agreement right, it's already smarter than our President ("Is our children learning?").

When the aliens arrive and realize how many other intelligent lifeforms we're wiping out on this planet (dolphins, whales, parrots, gorillas, etc.), they're going to recognize us as the monsters we are and burn us off the face of the globe.

Fine with me. Let Polly and Koko take over.
