Panel Questions

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Right now, panel, it is time for you to answer some questions about this week's news.

Brian, the U.K.'s National Parrot Sanctuary had to remove five parrots from public view after they kept doing what?

BRIAN BABYLON: Swearing, cursing.

SAGAL: Swearing, yes.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

SAGAL: They had foul mouths. The parrots were given to the sanctuary by five different owners in one week. And then when they were quarantining together, they taught each other to swear. The park CEO says that when the parrots eventually went out in public display, quote, "literally within 20 minutes, we were told that they had sworn at a customer and for the next group of people, all sorts of obscenities came out." They say they worried about the children. But honestly, this is the only thing that would make me want to visit a bird sanctuary. Yeah, those parrots, they're PG-13. Those are R. And I'm sorry - if you want to go look at that parrot, I'm going to need to see your ID and have you sign a release.

BABYLON: Isn't it like the Disney crows?

JESSI KLEIN: Yes (laughter), Disney crows. I was just going to say, do you think we could get those parrots to moderate the next debate?

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "I SWEAR")

ALL-4-ONE: (Singing) I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky...

SAGAL: And coming up, we pop the NBA bubble in our Bluff the Listener game. Call 1-888-WAIT-WAIT to play. We'll be back in a minute with more of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME from NPR. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
