Stolen Parrot

I managed to glance at the first sentence in one of the local Bristol newspapers this morning. Apparently someone has stolen a talented parrot. The parrot can imitate Daleks, and can whistle parts of Beethoven’s fifth and ninth symphonies. It seemed out of place in the sentence to specify that the parrot knew only parts of Beethoven’s fifth. Lest we might think that the parrot would go from start to finish on the entire symphony, including that controversial repeat in the third movement.
