The problem with parrots is that Perl 6's engine is called Parrot.
Although I suppose the image of a dead Parrot/snake eating a parrot etc 
could be a "good" one in some peoples minds. But i'm not sure Perl 
people are really the sort that you wan't to make enemies of, they are 
deadly with custard pies. It's a bit immature to insult another language 
like that anyway, not thats the idea you where going for of course.
