I hate to tell you this - but that isn't a canary you bought from the pet shop, but a deceased Norweigen Blue parrot.

Suddenly and without warning everything in the sewer turns purple. Parke has arrived and all the sewer creatures dance. The crocs call for an all out sewer rave....and so it is. It's time to bond with the sewer folks. The party begins. Parke dances like that weird midget from twin peaks and talks in purple'I hope I'm not too late. I've been at Tim J's barbeque counting pickles.'

Two questions -

1) How many pickles were there?

2) How long are you prepared to wait here to see them again?

Well now you've hurt the pickles feelings. Do say you're sorry or they might throttle you.
