Essay on Avian Understanding

Congratulations to virtual Stoic Chris Brooke for spotting the parallels between the wise parrot sketch (not to be confused with Churchill’s parrot) and Locke’s Essay on Human Understanding.

For what it’s worth, I think Locke is entirely correct: should this parrot not be a complete hoax, it still can never be a man. Maybe Peter Cuthbertson will use this fact as an argument against gay marriage.
