The starry eyed brothers.

August 17, 2010

Hernandez the parrot and Joe the monkey were twin brothers. Not identical, mind, Hernandez was much bigger and more colourful than Joe.

The twins did everything together. They picked flowers, they baked cakes, they set fire to tyres and rolled them down hills into oncoming traffic causing chaos, severe injury, and on one occasion, loss of life.

My, what fun they had!

One day, Joe suggested to Hernandez that they should fly to Los Angeles to see the stars, to which he happily agreed. However, Hernandez was not that clever, and he thought that Joe must have meant the stars in the sky, and by that logic, Los Angeles must be IN SPACE.

So they flew out into the cosmos together, never to be heard of again, but it is said that if you look up into the sky on a clear night, you can see a small monkey and big parrot getting the autograph of Mars.
