Eats Shoots & Screams

(Not really modeled on Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss)

Wildlife Manual:

Amazon & Pionus Parrots. Medium-sized, predominantly green, short-tailed, hook-billed birds, native to Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Eats shoots & screams.

JoeJoe: “Yep, that’s about right.”

Kobe: “It doesn’t make sense – surely it’s eats shoots and vegetables?”

JoeJoe: “When did you last scream?”

Kobe: “I don’t scream, I eat vegetables… and scrambled egg.”

Chico: “Don’t forget grapes. I like grapes.”

Bobbie: “I screamed this morning – my ‘good to be alive’ scream! Hopefully it made the neighbours happy too.”

JoeJoe: “Well, then…”

Kobe: “Ok, so it’s, eats shoots, vegetables, scrambled egg, grapes & screams.”

Bobbie: “What about the leaves?”

JoeJoe: “What about them?”

JoeJoe: “It wasn’t me!”
