Cockatoos Have the Most Fun When Their Owners Arenít Home (video)

Youíve seen the video of the dog sliding into the pool when his owner goes away.

We already know that some birds are smarter than people. So see what Samson the brilliant cockatoo decides to do when his owner goes away, leaving him in his cage. The video is choreographed to the Mission Impossible theme.

My cockatoo was a bugger, but my African Grey is even worse! No doubt these birds are super-smart. My G*d, the trouble they cause.

Yes there was a finger to the right of the screen, obviously another person was in the room which makes me think that the whole thing was a setup. Although I know cockies are very smart :)
