The ever-so elusive choc-a-too!

In all seriousness though, I do feel awful for the poor bird, as chocolate is poisonous (if not poisonous then it sure as hell isn't healthy).

Yeah, after the 2nd shot, I don't think it was a real bird. There is absolutely no movement once it contacts the chocolate. And can you imagine a bird standing still for that... it would drown in the chocolate. I don't think so. I'm certain it was faked.

Chocolate IS toxic in sufficient quantity. It takes about 6lbs at one sitting to poison a human, much less for a bird, but a tiny quantity once in a while is probably not all that bad. They key, though, is TINY. So why bother?

CB got a spoon that had chocolate ice cream on it. He definitely had some digestive upsets and watery stool, and he only had it for barely five seconds before I grabbed it away from him.

Yup it's fake. It's from an Adam Sandler movie.. The bird is coherently speaking English contently while bathing in the chocolate.....
