Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… Knoxville’s own Einstein the parrot:
That segment aired in 2004 on Animal Planet’s Pet Star (though I hadn’t seen it until this morning, when my mom e-mailed it to me). Einstein was eventually voted AnimalPlanet.com’s most popular Pet Star ever, and she appeared on Leno. And she’s way more interesting than Fred Thompson. :) Einstein for President!
