YSaC, Vol. 756: Paging Bacontini!

2010 August 12

Cocktails (Breeders)


We have two pairs of breeder cocktails that need a good home. We also have a female cocktail that needs a good home. They are atleast about 2-3 years old.
If you have any questions please call Edith at (redacted phone number). For a small fee they will come with a cage, toys and a little bit of food. We hope to hear from you soon.

Hmm.. What’s a “breeder cocktail?”

Clearly it’s a cocktail which produces more alcohol than is used in its production. There are several types, including Gas-Cooled Fast Cocktails, Liquid Fluoride Cocktails, and Travelling Wave Cocktails. However, due to safety concerns, they’ve been more or less abandoned for the time being, although this may change as the price of uranium and/or pickled pearl onions rises.

Thanks for the link, Anna!

      Hello, this is Tacomagic here to talk to you about a cause that needs your help.

      This is a Singapore Sling made with Philip’s Gin, a bottom shelf liquor. Nobody wanted him so he ended up in a Humane Society Kennel with the most likely outcome of being poured down the drain.

      Every day cocktails are bred in captivity on alcohol farms in horrible conditions using bottom shelf liquor. These cocktails are sold cheap to bars who don’t care about the quality of life of these drinks which are then sold to unqualified owners who often end up releasing the cocktail into the city.

      *Images of Cocktails in cages, some spilled or partially consumed are shown. Some cocktails have fruit skewers that are starting to go soft with age.*

      Now our Humane Societies are filled with these wayward cocktails who need your help. If you are a caring owner and have the room, run don’t walk to your nearest humane society and request to give a bottom shelf cocktail a good home. If you don’t have the room, then please give to the Cocktail Placement Society. For only 13 cents a day we’ll help place needing cocktails with drunken transients who can make sure these loving drinks get the home they deserve.

      *Drinks the Singapore Sling*
      BLECH! Gods damn; who makes a Singapore Sling with Philip’s Gin?! Seriously, somebody bring me some antifreeze to gargle!

          I don’t mean to seem obtuse, but what’s wrong with that song? I think it’s the perfect choice when showing acute cocktails; it’s complimentary to the primary message. And, I don’t think it’s right to make fun of somebody who sines for a good cause.

        Christina,

        I am probably the oddest bird breeder around. I give away most of my babies. In fact, I have a nice handfed love bird I am looking to place in a good home. He’s a sweetie, but annoys the African grays too much. 8)

        I like to find children or people who don’t understand the bond with a bird can be as strong as that with a dog or a cat. I like to get them thinking about conservation and responsible pet ownership. My recent run-in with a horder has made me hypersensitive to keeping my birds clean, well fed, and to a decent number that my honey and I can handle.

        The only profit I expect is the warm glow when a new bird owner says to me, now I understand why you have so many birds!

        Oh, here’s the Corey tags, place them where appropriate. (No, that’s not what I meant!)

          I’ve never had any luck with birds. I’ve owned 2 budgies, which didn’t like me and hid in their nest whenever I was around. We had a yellow cockatoo who was an evil bird who hated me and wanted me to die (Seriously, if I walked in the room while he was out, he’d fly at my face and try to scratch out my eyes and bite my nose). And, we had a red amazon parrot who hated me and wanted me to die (See notes on the cockatoo).

          The only bird who’s ever liked me was a giant Macaw named Barney. But to be fair, he liked EVERYONE. He was like a house cat who pooped on your shoulder.

          Sorry Windrose, I hope that didn’t sound like I was being snarky towards you. I probably shouldn’t comment before coffee. From everything you’ve mentioned, you are the patron saint of birds, which is amazing and admirable. Edith, however, can’t be arsed to Google “cockatiel” which makes me weary of the kind of care they received.
          If you need me I’ll be down at the court house, changing my name to Matt. :p

          Bridgete – I had two birds and two cats at one time…unfortunately, the birds had to be kept locked in a room away from the kitties when we weren’t around. Not much fun for the birds. They were budgies and adorable and I loved them…alas, they died…got something, can’t remember what it was….and died within a week of one another. The cats were astounded that I would bury something so tasty. Since then, just cats and I too consider them familiars. Right now, I’ve got one inside, and two strays outside at home. Here, at work, I’ve got six strays. My gravvie is one of them, his name is Drum.

          Oh yeah, OT/corey/whatever..

          [corey] for Taco: cockatoos are usually very loving birds, but sometimes they pick one person, and protect that person from everyone else. Did the bird like Mrs. Taco? Amazons, notorious for being one person birds, and will still bite that person. Budgies are flock birds of the highest order. If they are pulled from the nest at a week old, hand fed, and socialized well, they can be loving, happy clowns. But otherwise they feel very insecure unless there is a flock of ten or more around them. In the wilds of Australia, they are hunted by snakes, lizards, and people. They are too small to really fight anything off, so they stay in huge groups and hope they get away when disaster strikes. So if you looked like a predetor, and there weren’t a dozen more birds around, they did the next best thing and hid! 8) This ends today’s nature lecture. Please turn in your notes. [/corey]

          The Cockatoo was just a spaz and he was going through “that part” of his life where he really wanted to give his end away. He hated most males other than my father, who I think he viewed as come kind of dominating alpha or something. He liked my mother and sister, so really that just left me for him to view as a rival I guess. We sold him to an aviary where they put him in a breeding program. Apparently after he started getting some love he mellowed out quite a bit.

          I think the parrot had the same deal with me.

          CJ – Yeah, I mean, I could have birds if they were locked in a separate room, but like you said, not much fun for the birds. And Severus is used to having the run of the place, he’d get annoyed if I suddenly closed off an entire room, especially if he could hear what he’ll certainly think are tasty treats just on the other side of the door.

          We got our cockatiel first, and then our cat about six months later… Pineapple (bird) mostly chills in/on his cage, but sometimes he likes to fly around the house and buzz(particularly appropriate for today’s conversation)/dive bomb Patrick (cat). Patrick watches him, but has given up on eating or playing with him… Especially with Roy (kitten) joining our family, Patrick thinks he’s a kitten again πŸ™‚ Roy still needs to learn that Pineapple != food or toy…

          Brigete, I’m with you – I’d adore having a bird or two, but not while my cat haz mad hunting skillz. He’s very good, very fast, and very interested in hunting. Even if I felt I could secure the bird from him, I think the bird could still sense its prey status and would probably expire of fear.

          Lola, I meant to add that my Severus has the potential to be the best hunter out of all the cats I’ve had. He’s fast and interested in the idea of hunting, just like yours, although he’s never had the chance to do it. He’s also extremely patient, so he knows how to wait for the perfect moment to pounce…something I’ve noticed when playing the toes under blanket game.

          Firefly would be a serial killer of all things small, feathered, and furred if she ever got outside. When I first got the kittens I had a very old dwarf hamster that Simon ignored and Fearless would only pay attention to if it was moving through the little plastic tubes, but Firefly went absolutely crazy over it. She would watch the hamster like it was a tiny furry television set, even sitting on top of the cage and watching the poor thing sleep like some sort of stalker. I think she was trying to melt a hole through the plastic with her gaze.

          One of the steps to making a bacontini is to: “Rub bacon grease on the rim of the martini glass.”

          Also to, “Skim the excess bacon grease off the surface of the drink.”

She loved showing, and she was fortunate that the first dog she took in the ring was a natural. Liisa would self-stack, and is so beautiful.
