This post will not make much sense.  There's a regular in my group of gaming friends who goes by Redeko.  Naturally, I always refer to him as "Dorko," usually in the same intonation as David Lee Roth saying "Sit down, Waldo."  One of the many idiot behaviors I get up to with said gaming group is making memes that are so many layers of in-jokes even the subjects themselves don't entirely understand them.  Redeko works at a sandwich shop, owns an RE-20 microphone, and recently bought a new car and a 4K webcam (because those are a thing now.)  I memes I usually represent him as a sandwich, because of his job:

One of the other MicS members has been harping on the fact that Redeko IRL looks like a SoundCloud rapper named Yung Gravy and I should use him instead of a sandwich to represent Dorko:

After completing the above two 'Shops, I made the mistaking of listening to a Yung Gravy song.  The track that made him famous, in fact:

 

It's not just that I'm old.  Your music is BAD.  I had to dig up one of my favorite hip hop songs of all time just to feel okay again.

I am biased by having been exactly at the right age in 1991, but this is an entire genre and subculture peaking in one track.

My Aunt Molly and her husband Ken owned an African Grey parrot. It used to speak in Ken's voice - so when Ken died, it was kind of freaky to hear this bird speaking in dead Ken's voice.

It is apparently a real problem; often a bereaved person cannot cope with a bird talking in their dead partner's voice and have to sell the bird.

An African Grey can live up to 80 years. About 10 years ago a reporter for our current affairs radio channel (Radio 4) tracked down Churchill's ancient African Grey, which had ended up owned by a garden center. It must have been a slow news day:

"Does it speak in Churchill's voice?","Well, not really. It's very old and doesn't say much at all", "OK - but Churchill was famous for swearing - does the parrot swear?", "Never head it swear".

Basically summarizing the story - Churchill's parrot fails to talk.
