I Have Finally Solved Will Rogers' Toughest Puzzle

Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip. - Will Rogers

Our pet parrot is roughly 20 years old and has been with us for about 10 of those years. She has bonded to me and me alone. Selling her to anyone else would make both of us sad and me very ashamed. For the longest time, I could not see a solution that allows me to live my life as Will Rogers intends. I have finally found the solution though.

I must become the town gossip!

Seriously. No frickin' way I'd consider selling that bird, our other pets, or any other members of my family. He really didn't think it through.

And on that note, OMG! I just heard a rumor that Donald Trump might have actually been born in Mexico. A friend of a friend's friend just told me that they overheard something at the local mall!! Is it true? Who can say? Inquiring minds want to see his birth certificate though, if he still plans to become president.

Oh, and get this. It was also overheard that Trump wants to build walls made of gold around Mexico so that he can turn the entire country into an epic gated golf course for the world's elite. If true, kind of puts his "rapists" and "murderers" quotes in perspective. Perhaps it is simply intended to drive down labor costs? Who knows? I have not heard him deny it though.

Gossip, baby. That's what I'm talking about. It's the only way to protect our bird! Hahaha! ;)

What is cellophane?

That was a much harder puzzle for me to solve then Will Rogers', but that's probably because I don't have a parrot.

I was able to let it go the first time you used the photo with the jeopardy background as I was busy. But twice, no chance. It's a bit harder when you can only see a portion of the answer/question.
