Week in Review

  • Parrots might be capable of making sound economic decisions, according to a recent German study. A total of 33 birds were given a choice between eating a lower-quality food like sunflower seeds or taking a token that they could save for a prize like walnut pieces. The parrots consistently chose the tokens to invest in the prize. It’s still probably a good idea to avoid taking financial advice from your parrot, however (Aug. 23).
  • A Sharpei named Hoshi underwent life-saving surgery to remove an eight-inch skewer that became stuck after she ate a chicken kebab. The irony that their dog’s plight was caused by eating meat was not lost on the vegetarian owners. (Aug. 26).
  • President Donald Trump’s fingers have earned him criticism once again — only this time, it’s not for Tweeting but for coloring. Photos of his recent visit with children in Columbus appear to indicate that he incorrectly colored one of the stripes on the American flag blue. Some of the more humorous critics couldn’t help but note the resemblance to the Russian flag, whose three stripes are white, blue and red (Aug. 27).
  • Authorities have banned swimming off the west coast of France after a bottlenose dolphin reportedly became a little too friendly with tourists and locals. The dolphin, named Zafar, was known for swimming close to boats and allowing children to pet him. However, he then began to rub himself against swimmers and boats in what appeared to be attempts to become intimate with them (Aug. 28).
