this just makes me happy

I know I'm late to the party with this, but I just saw an article about Snowball here on the BBC this morning. It seems that the scientific community had always considered the ability to dance a uniquely human characteristic, so this little feathery guy set off quite a re-jiggering of hypotheses. (Since the Beeb link has an ad embedded, I'm posting an older Animal Planet one here.)

But whatev's -- it just makes me smile. And not only because my friend Kristen is married to a member of Snowball's favorite boy band.

You go, boy.

My Guy just facebooked me a YouTube of a feathered friend dancing like WHOA to Ray Charles - it was hysterical! Our umbrella cockatoo never did anything cool like this.
