Bird or Octopus?

I must confess that I hate Parrots.

That's largely due to a horrible Cockatoo named Gnasher who destroyed my titanium IWC years ago on the Lady Jenny V somewhere between Sudan and Djibouti (reminiscences by John Bantin here) - never forgotten and never forgiven!
And what about that infernal screeching!

Yes, granted, they are beautiful and according to some, highly intelligent.
But honestly, does this look like intelligent, let alone psychic to you?

Octopi on the other hand are bloody cool!
And Paul is apparently infallible on top of that!

All of which really sucks, because ever since 1974, I'm a fan of the Netherlands!
Oh well.
