Louie's parrot

From the October 2001 issue of The Christian Science Journal

MY FRIEND LOUIE had a parrot named Pipo. They were good friends, and Louie would often say to him, "You have a big nose!" Soon Pipo began imitating Louie, repeating in the same tone of voice, "You have a big nose! You have a big nose!" Every time somebody walked into Louie's home, the parrot would call out, "You have a big nose!" Some people would stop and smile, in sort of an embarrassed way.
