|*A blue parakeet approaches the Calendar Page and
Tacks up a piece of paper*
He says to the crowd, "Hi! My name is Zip. Me and my frothers, Charlie and Wilberforce, are the March candidates for BOTM! Oh, here's Wilberforce. He'll explain how it's gonna work."
A big "normal" green English budgie with humongous dots on his face waddles up and looks at Zip oddly. "Uh, I'm not Wilberforce. I'm CHARLIE...I thought for sure YOU were Wilberforce." Another odd face. "Anyway, what with Mom's school, birthday, and other so-called hooman necessities, we are only going to be giving everybird our blog EVERY OTHER DAY. The other day we will be posting the blog on the Calendar Page. This plan will allow Mom to do necessary research and her other stupid hooman 'necessities.' Oh, HERE'S Wilb."
A "normal" green parakeet flies in. "What are you talking about, 'Wilb?' I'm not Wilberforce! YOU are!"
"Wait," Zip says, "If YOU'RE not Wilb..."
"Then who IS?" Charlie finishes.
...The three look at each other for a whole minute before running off and squeaking, "MOOOOO-OOOOOOOOM!"
