Many people really just need a positive boost to make it through the day. The Positive Affirmation Parrot would be professionally trained to meet the needs of the individual. Once the patient and parrot are matched, the parrot would provide the encouragement to help the person through the day. The Parrot could be treated just like any working animal, allowing people to take their parrot wherever they go. The list of positive affirmation phrases is endless, but could include such jewels as: You deserve happiness; You have the power to change; You are forgiving; You live in abundance; You choose happiness; You look stunning in puffy shirts; You are flexible and open to change; You are confident; You deserve to be loved; You are creative.

       This would be a great background for a short story - about the man who works at the parrot factory, training all these parrots to say life affirming things...

       Nice. Better make sure that we don't teach the bird about sarcasm...

       Worth it all meerly as build-up for Ian's pun.   

       In fact, it was so good, that if I were the suspicious, paranoid and delusional type, I might suspect that [Ian], [Jinbish] and [Salted Nuts] were all in cahoots (perhaps signalling to one another using some kind of pre-agreed code) and that this whole thing were engineered for the sole purpose of setting up that one joke.
