A parakeet is a lesser form of parrot first hybridized by Dr. Peter Griffin of the Dow Chemical Company in an effort to create a more efficient means of cleaning thin copper tubing while providing a nutritious food source for pipe fitters and plumbers. The suffix "keet" reflected the common practice of impaling several of the small birds on sharpened metal rods (or "keets") before cooking them in the manner of the Turkish kebab.
Originally available in muted shades of grey, the parakeet now comes in a rainbow of beautiful colours, although, among experts, the pure yellow variety (or "lutino") is considered the tastiest. Ordinarily, the beak is licked thoroughly before the head can be chewed and swallowed in order to remove the waxy paratoxin exuded by glands just below the nostrils.
A Bold Experiment
The parakeet represents the first successful use of female condom as a substratum of non-reproductive cloning, now used to produce a wide variety of ordinary household products including abrasive mitts, the "grape" tomato, and an entire range of flossing products.
Wild Franconia parrots were exposed to erotic images in order to obtain the ejaculate media, which could be collected and preserved for long periods of time. It is suspected that the high levels of protein and cloacazine in the Franconia sperm give parakeets their nutty taste.
Dr. Griffin originally experimented with flightless, featherless parakeets, but experiments showed that, without feathers, friction within the copper tubing would cause the parakeets to superheat and bleed profusely, leaving only small bits of rectal tissue. Some breeding houses have continued to propagate these naked strains for certain Papal sexual rituals, including the venerated "Reverse Gluteus Rebound."
Parakeet Wine: A Breakthrough
Of course, who can forget their first glass of vintage budgerigar wine, falling gracefully against the soft palate with a hint of feathers and mould?
A parakeet that feeds your children and talks to you! They were first tested in England, then Japan and are bigger than normal parakeets by virtue of being *cough* 'English' *cough* and pimped. Weird Al owned one until it got loose and killed a neighbour. This is where he got the idea for White and Nerdy, not a rap song. Try letting your parakeets fly around once in a while. They might learn the rudiments of air warfare and practice on you. By air warefare, we mean: parakeets contain about one-hundred stocks of Poop-47s, their hacked version of AK-47's, and The Chirp-O-Tron-1000, the version associated with Quantum Mechanics and Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Cursed Parakeet (2003 Title), Disney Co.
