Parroting the line on Brexit
HAVE you seen the video that’s gone viral of that clever cockatoo?
He finds a box with a tasty treat inside but it’s stuck up a ramp out of reach.
So he takes a sheet of cardboard and pecks off a strip EXACTLY the right length to poke through a hole and get the food.
After years of study, Austrian scientists reckon Goffin’s cockatoos are as clever as apes or four-year-old humans.
They can solve tricky problems and have even learned to delay instant gratification for the promise of greater rewards later.
Perhaps we could get them to tackle Brexit and help out the Government’s paper shufflers.
Although I think they’ve got a few bird brains on the case already.
