Associated Press-Thursday, January 19, 2006

Persons close to influencial sports writer Nick Athan have confirmed on the promise of anonymity that Athan's source for recent articles dealing with the Kansas City Chiefs is a talking parrot.

"Zeus", an African Grey kept in an ornate cage in Carl Peterson's office, can mimic separate words and compose simple sentences and has, according to reports, communicated words including "Solari", "OC", and "Too Much Money!" to the cleaning staff at the Arrowhead complex who have passed on these details to Athan.

Athan was unavailble for comment and did not return repeated calls prior to press. However, Zeus has indicated that, from this point forward, he will only communicate through his attorney, "Fred" - an arabian trumpeter pigeon residing in Independence, MO.

Not really, Mr. Skip Towne. I just copied this from another board.

Hope it's not a re-post.

Are you poking fun, Mr. Skip Towne? I certainly hope so, because I was just poking fun at people who poke fun at people who copy the stuff other people post on other boards where they're poking fun at other people.

I don't know where this crap comes from, frankly. I just hope that it isn't a re-post.

Is the parrot drunk or retarded?
