Andrew Jackson the seventh President of the United States owned and African Grey Parrot. The bird’s name was Poll, Jackson taught Poll how to curse like a sailor, which he found entertaining. However, at Jacksons funeral in 1845 the foul fowl proceeded to go into a cursing tirade. It was so horrifying to those in attendance they had to have Poll removed from the service. I am sure Jackson found his pet’s impromptu cursed filled tribute amusing.
