No wait don't laugh! I'm serious about this......
A mutated strain of the bird flu has gotten to Australia. It gets passed to a duck then to a magpie then to a .......umm....a willy wagtail yeah thats it a willy wagtail and then to your cute little mate in his cage. He was just minding his own business talking, eating seed, humping his mirror. His little buddy Willy Wagtail seems different today? What's up mate? AAACHOO! aww gross! you got snot on me!
What seems like an innocent everyday occurrence triggers the change that sweeps through the nation!
get off me! they're in my hair! oh wait...its just fiction OR IS IT?
I'm not getting any sleep tonight!
