The court case is about a parrot who was listening to some very loud music, which disturbed his neighbors.
The court began with the testimony of the Kangaroo couple, the wife took the stand to describe her case. The jurors looked on as she cried her eyes out, pushing the best tears out she could manage.
Through her tears she explained how she moved into a quiet neighborhood, we are very sensitive to noise she said, we startle easily. We were having a quiet night out, enjoying the night air, and how simply fresh and quiet it was. It was lovely at first, quiet, barely hearing even a cricket chirp.
Then suddenly, out of nowhere, loud blaring, banging, screaming with squawking sounds was coming from the the neighbor. Loud, shrill, and terrible music was blaring. We were mortified, as tears streamed out of her eyes and down her cheek. That mean bird, that parrot, he plays Death Metal all night long.
We tried going next door to talk to him. Knocking gently on the door, asking through the door, can you please turn down the music a bit? Please? Bbut he ignored us. Or maybe it was just so loud that he couldn't hear us. We had to call the police, they agreed that the music was quite loud.
As she left the stand, a witness to the event, a local audiophile, a Koala named Harold, who happened to own a decibel meter. He stated that indeed the music was quite loud, way louder than the local noise ordinance allows at night, or even the day.
Then Parrot took the stand, he said that he was just enjoying some soft music at night, trying to relax and unwind, when suddenly these angry kangaroo's came in and started banging heavy on his door with their giant feet. I was so frightened, I didn't know what to do, I was scared for my life. They were all so much bigger than me, all I heard was yelling at me, I could barely understand them. I didn't do anything wrong, I was just listening to some music..
Well they had the music device he was listening too, and it was a large boombox. And as it happened, the music the bird was listening too was still inside. It was in fact death metal, and when plugged in and turned on, the volume was on MAX.
The parrot said, that wasn't mine, but it was in his house, it was confiscated on the night of the problem, and the tape inside had your name on it.
So the judge said, for this kind of disorderly conduct, you get a $500 fine, for lying to court, 30 days of community service. And next time you want to listen to music, keep the volume low or wear headphones.
