London (CNN) Five parrots have been removed from public view at a British wildlife park after they started swearing at customers. The foul-mouthed birds were split up after they launched a number of different expletives at visitors and staff just days after being donated to Lincolnshire Wildlife Park in eastern England.
"It just went ballistic, they were all swearing," the venue's chief executive Steve Nichols told CNN Travel on Tuesday. "We were a little concerned about the children." "I get called a fat t**t every time I walk past," Nichols complained.

What’s not to love about parrots? Gorgeous and smart, make great friends.
I had a buddy in the Navy who got a parrot as a joke. He was shocked to find out the thing was likely to outlive him. And his wife eventually made him give it up for the same reason as the zoo. His buddies kept teaching the bird salty words and phrases.
She's kissed a cockatoo..
Kissed a cockatoo...I may die laughing.............
The man turns around, but there's nobody there and he's mystified. Finally, he figures out that it's a parrot sitting on a perch that was talking to him. So he says to the parrot, "What?"
The parrot says, "You're stupid and ugly and so's your wife!"
The man says, "Whaaaaat?"
The parrot says, "You heard me. You're stupid and ugly and so's your wife".
They leave in a huff to go find the store manager. Store manager says, "I'm so sorry sir. I deeply apologize. Sometimes that parrot gets into a weird mood and does this. But don't worry, I'll take care of it right now."
The manager puts on thick gloves, grabs the parrot by his legs with one hand, and with the other he goes whap! whap! whap! left, right, left, right, smacking the bird silly, leaving him woozy & wobbly, with feathers all over the place. He says to the visitors, "Don't worry, that should fix the problem. It won't happen again."
Later as the couple leaves the store, they walk down that same aisle as the parrot, and just after passing him they hear, "Passsst! Hey buddy!"
The man whips around: "WHAAAAAAT?!?"
The parrot says, "You know what".
""They literally, within a very short period of time,
starting swearing at each other," Nichols said.
"'F**k off' is the most common one," he explained.."
Who's a pretty bird?
Everything you said: I have three small parrots and they are always entertaining.
*Pat, I would like to buy a vowel.
Really, t**t is not what I think it might be.
Is it a British thing like "bird"?
Well, is he?
They can deliver them to me. I’ll take good care of them :)
My sides! lmao
There was a tavern in NE WI that had a mina bird. The dam bird used to say eff you every time he got the urge.
The tavern keeper would run over and throw the cover over the cage to shut the thing up because it would keep on saying it.
Okay, found it...twat.
>> Okay, found it...twat.
I was thinking teat...
Twat Teat Twit
Try saying that three times fast — lol
