    Pliny records that parrots can be taught to speak by hitting them on the head with an iron rod, because their head is as hard as their beak and there is no other way to make the lesson stick.
    Knowing that ancient Rome had professional parrot trainers, my conclusions are twofold:
    (1) Pliny was a sucker, and (2) professional Roman parrot trainers did not want competition.
