No, NOT on Twitter. In person!

Here's the scoop. A lost pet parakeet in Japan was recently brought home when he was able to "tell" (well actually tweet) police where he lived.

A happy ending! But it turns out that was just the beginning. A Spoof reporter who has recently interviewed (in bird talk, of course!) a group of birds has discovered that the lost parakeet's act has inspired a number of amazing consequences in the bird community.

Some parakeets have chosen to learn, not their own addresses, but, instead, the addresses of more upscale dwellings. As one chirped, "If I find myself lost, I'm not going back to the same old dump. I'm definitely upgrading and learning a fancier address. I'm headed out to the richer part of town."

There's a rumor that even Big Bird is in the market for better lodgings than the ones he's enjoyed on Sesame Street for so long. "Find me a new pad, and I'm outta here," he has reportedly said.

Some parakeets have told the reporter that, if lost, they would like to be brought back to their old address, but they are planning on technology to get them there. As one said, "I won't be wasting my voice; I'll just get on Twitter and tweet hello and help me to the world. No problem, as long as I know my address."

And, in a most surprising development, U. S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney was caught on videotape trying to teach his pet parakeet what he hopes will be his new address: "White House." Unfortunately, though, the parakeet wasn't buying it. Instead of listening, he just kept chirping.

Or laughing.
