OriginEdit

The Dead Parrot sketch, performed by Monty Python in their Flying Circus show is considered to be the most iconic and well-known of their many sketches. In the act, a man returns to a pet store to complain that an expensive parrot he had just purchased was in fact dead from the start. Implausible denial ensues until the owner suggests the customer visit his brother's store a town over.

He does so, only to find the store to be exactly the same and the owner to be the first man with a very suspicious mustache. As they begin arguing again, the sketch is cut short by a constable who declares that it is becoming too silly.

EffectsEdit

When people are in proximity to the stuffed prop they begin to develop a propensity for simile. They find fascination in stating the stated. Their words are repeated but different and they speak multiple of the same. The longer the effect is held, the more unusual the comparisons. Oddness compounds with the time. The balmy tree grows quickly.

This can be mitigated by informing them that they are being silly, which snaps them out of it.
