Ted Richards, a man from Bristol, England, has decided that his life's purpose is to look like his favorite bird, the parrot. The 57-year-old has had his eyes tattooed, installed horns on his head (newsflash, parrots don't have horns), and cut his ears off, all in an effort to turn himself into a parrot.
"I’ve come right out of my shell," Richards explained to the anchors, "since I’ve been doing all this, I’ve been talking to a lot more people."
Kudos to Ted Parrotman for expressing himself the way he wants. If he feels good doing it, more power to him. I hope he finally realizes his dream one day of becoming a parrot and can even fly.
