London, October 5 : A cheeky parrot has been put for sale after his owner got fed up of him - because he keeps saying "w*****" to her pals.
Despite her many efforts to teach the bird dozen other words, Kate Lenihan has decided to sell Charlie the African Grey.
The 31-year-old owner, who bought Charlie as a chick last year, has given up on the bird who wolf-whistles at women, eats chicken tikka masala and nods along to gangster rap.
The mum-of-three, of Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, is selling him for 625 pounds because all he says is "w*****" or his favourite, "chav chav w*** w***".
"It's embarrassing with friends," the Sun quoted Kate as saying.
"Sometimes they give it back but that only makes him more cheeky," she added.
Meanwhile, sheepish hubby Aaron, 27, admitted: "He learned the word from me. At heart he's a lovely bird."
