More Linguistic Fun

I once met an extremely talented parrot who could imitate the voice of every family member, all their cell phones, beepers; everything.

I totally stumped him with this:

"Idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis"

My personal favorites for stumping parrots (and my little sister when she was learning how to talk and would mimic everything you said):

Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis

Keratinized Stratified Squamous Epithelium

I can stump my cockatoo every time by pulling out the cooking sherry and inviting her to step into a cold frying pan. Goes completely mute.
