    Hit Parrots

    Have you ever heard of "hitting Parrots with someone?" That comes from "The pirates of Somalia" movie. The line goes "Yo, bro, you want to, like,hit Parrots with us?"

    [edit]
    It's all right. Parrot is a name .
    I think that "Hit Parrots" means simply "Go to Parrots".

    No, I can't say I have.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Aha! I see you figured it out without us!

    Be sure to use the possessive apostrophe: Parrot's
