Over the weekend, I had an idea for a product: the parrot alarm clock.
Let's say you set your alarm for 5 am. For the first 5 minutes or so, it could be very sweet noises -- light chirping, a sweet grey saying, "wanna get up? I love you!" Maybe some pleasant whistling.
If you don't turn the alarm off and get out of bed, it slowly escalates the parrot noises -- repetitive caique beeping, perhaps, or violent bell-ringing.
If you're not up by 5:10, it starts in on amazon alarm calls or macaw squawking.
5:15? The big guns are called in: cockatoo screaming.
