Good Morning! Or Whatever!

Let's all watch and/or read the transcript for this video of Max the Cockatoo being very adorable and very smart!

Video Description: Max the Cockatoo, a white bird with black eyes and a grey beak and grey feet, is chilling in his playroom with his BFF, a black cat named Angel. He looks at his guardian, a white man, who's filming him. "Hi," Max says. He goes to his toybox and pulls out a (clean) toilet brush, carrying it in his beak to his guardian. He climbs up on the arm of the chair in which the man is sitting. "What are we doing with that?" the man asks. "You gonna clean your perches?"

Max drops the brush and then reaches out with his foot and strokes the bristles. "You gonna clean your perches, hmm?" Max stares at the man plaintively, then again strokes the bristles with his foot. The man holds up the brush, and Max leans his head toward it. "Really? You want me to pet you with it?" the man asks. Max leans down, and the man begins stroking him gently with the brush. Angel sits in the background, disinterested in this entire exchange. Max contentedly grooms his feet while he gets pet with the toilet brush.
