• Name: Requiem for a Parrot
  • Caption: My initial thought when I came over to the Bummer was this was this amazing post-apocalyptic scene. Like the survivors of some technological holocaust are huddled around a fire for warmth, the ruins of industrial society behind them.

    But it's actually a very sad personal story. The Bummer team are gathered around the funeral pyre for the camp parrot, Vlad's Moluccan cockatoo, who was accidentally killed by a car during the construction. Farewell, Flappy.
