Smarties chocolate company (Nestlé) would like to hire a little gray parrot... ;o)
Now, I must qualify all my talk of her vanity with the amazingness of her intellect. She's no "dumb blonde". Berkley, my African Gray parrot (named, appropriately, after the University), talks up a storm, does barnyard animal impressions, knows how to ask for what she wants (ie. "want water"), waives good bye, shakes hands and even knows how to put herself to bed. When it's late and it's past her bedtime but I'm busy doing something else, she'll squawk, jump off her parrot tower and march her way down the hallway with serious attitude that says "hey lady, it's BEDTIME, get with the program!". She then climbs up into her cage and pulls the door closed. It's seriously the cutest thing in the world to watch.
