CAN ONLY SAY 'OH PIFFLE
St. Louis, July 17. If you have
a parrot with a voice perfectly at
tuned to profanity, and if you are
succeeding- in teaching the bird
several expressions not heard in
Sunday school, and if your wife
steps in and refuses -.to allow the
bird to speak its mind
Wouldn't it make you want to
commit suicide.
1 Richard Sheppard, 35, says it
would. Twice he attempted to
take poison because his wife in
terfered with the training of their
"child." When Sheppard attempt
ed to train the bird in wrong ways
Mrs. Sheppard butted in and said
her "darling" was a perfect dear
and shouldn't hear horrid swear
words. She had her way. The
parrot's strongest exclamation is
"Oh, piffle."
Then Sheppard bought a dime's
worth of rat poison and said he
was going "where he could teach
parrots anything he wanted to."
, He hasn't gone.
