Title

What is a wise bird like you doing in a silly tale like this?

Description

The silly town of Pickleberry is full of nonsense. The emperor treats his bird better than his own brother, who is his janitor. He sends his brother out on an errand, not knowing he was tricked into doing a favor for the bird. As Lou escapes, a salesman gets a hold of him. He escapes again by reciting his nonsense tales of Pickleberry. He finally reaches his Aunt Millie and continues to recite and pass on his side of the story, a lot of nonsense!
