Chip Douglas here and how about some strange news for your Monday?  I couldn't believe this one when I read it.  Not unbelieveable, I guess.  Read on!

A lost parakeet found its way home in Japan-- after reciting its entire address to a police officer. The bird escaped from a house in Yokohama and made its way to the city's downtown area. After finding its way into a hotel, it was captured then turned over to police. Despite giving no indications that it could talk, the bird suddenly began repeating its home address which enabled officers to easily track down its 64-year-old owner. Let that be a lesson to bird owners. Better start saying your address over and over and over and over and over.
