Time for a quickie

I thought I would pop my head out of the proverbial cave and say a quick hello to my beloved lovelies. My sincerest apologies for depriving you of your regularly prescribed dose of smirks and snarkery.

Today we will have to keep things short and sweet. As such I hope you will enjoy a clip of my favorite cursing parrot that I dug up from the video vault. Being highly skilled in word pervery I’m thinking perhaps we can name the bird our honorary mascot of The Ranter’s Box:

And lest I be remiss, I want to give a huge shout-out to J.Day at The Ramblings of Charlie Brown, Mrs. Hyde at A Bitch Called Mom, and Pencil Girl at Conquering the World for naming me as a recipient of The LOL Award.

Also, another heartfelt thank you goes out to Bouncin’ Barb at This and That and Crazy Ramblings of a Tired Mom who both were so kind as to bestow me with The Stylish Blogger Award.

Thanks for the outpouring of blog love and a big welcome to all the lovely new readers that have joined our snarky blog family as well.

Have a fantabulous week!

    Congrats to you, my sister from another mister! You are as stylish as you are funny. xoxo

  6. I wonder if I could teach my cat a special word or two? Then again, if he were to pick up on particular four-letter words, he would have done so by now.

  7. @The Adorkable Ditz: Glad you enjoyed the video!

    @Falen aka Thundercat: If anyone was going to enjoy this foul-mouthed bird I knew it had to be you!! Apologies for the undie soiling ; )

    @Semi True Torystellar: Do you think we can kidnap him?

    @Oilfield Trash: I am blushing. Awards and a compliment all in one day. Thank you!

    @Bruce: Could you imagine if that bird stayed over at your place for the weekend? I'm trying to imagine who would win the swear-fest ; )

    @Mrs. Hyde: He is a brilliant bird isn't he? Love right back at you sister!

    @On My Soapbox: Do tell. What exactly might those particular four letter words be? ; )

  8. Very funny. Thankyou for the smile. Trying to think of something slightly more witty but my brain is tired.
    Hugs darln Empress.

  9. Loved the video! Congrats on the awards!

    thanks for popping in and saying hello, I missed you.


  10. hahahahaha!! We had an African grey parrot when I was a kid. My friends and I taught it to say "hey you little shit!" and "you pussy!" My brother has the bird now and whenever we're on the phone I can hear him in the background saying naughty things! That just never stops being funny.

  11. Empress...You are welcome. We'd rather have short and sweet than nothing at all! Love your posts. Hugs.

  12. Congrats on your awards!

    This parrot reminds me of the cockatiel who sings "Whistle While You Work" after having sex with his lovely lady. The double trouble combo of these two made my day. >:D

  13. OMG, he's speaking French!!!!!!!!
    Oh, yeah, and the parrot talks like a sailor, too.

  14. @Mynx: You are most welcome my friend and hugs right back at you!

    @becca: Hello chickadee and hugs right back at you too!

    @Canadianbloggergirl: Glad you liked it and I try to stop by as often as possible : )

    @Alli: Too funny! I'm not sure if hearing a bird swear or listening to it laugh is more enjoyable.

    @Bouncin' Barb: Aww, I'm feeling the blog love. Thank you!

    @Diabolical Me: OMG! I would love to hear that cockatiel whistle.

    @Al Penwasser: Thanks for stopping by and chiming in. Sailor talk is highly encouraged here at The Ranter's Box ; )

    @Chief aka Dad: Thanks and congrats to you as well on your awards. Keep up the great work.

  15. Snarkery may be my new favorite word. Congrats on your awards darling!

  16. I would teach my cat foreign swear words or filthy phrases. Then he could say them when my mother came to visit.
