Budgies don't stand on one leg, sadly they die earlier than flamingos!

Scientists have been interviewing flamingos whilst standing on one leg in Africa because they wanted to know what the health benefits are.

Chief flamingo, Pinky, told scientists, "we do it because it preserves energy and therefore we live longer!"

The scientists have now produced a study and the next hype for humans is to convince them to stand on one leg when they can! There are certain side effects; varicose veins in one leg, none in the other, knees, ankles and hips will need replacing but, flamingos are proof that if you work in shops, wait for buses or trains, or anything that requires standing for longer periods, do it on one leg!

Famous, ancient lead-singer of English band, Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson, who also talks to flamingos when high, was aware of this amazing secret a long time ago because when Jethro did their live shows, Ian stood on one leg, played the flute, lived the rock and roll lifestyle and still is performing Locomotive Breath live. This classic song was inspired by flamingos too; Ian saw them floating through his head whilst spacing on LSD!

There you have it, the secret to longevity is standing on one leg dressed in pink! You might get some funny looks at the bus stop but, you can give the onlookers the bird!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
