"I told you!! Put your wing over your beak when you sneeze!" 27 October, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000350

A housewife with a mask over her nose and mouth is vacuuming out the bird cage. There are only a couple of feathers floating in the air in the cage but halfway down the length of the vacuum-cleaner hose there is a bump from which issues the words 'I told you!! Put your wing over your beak when you sneeze!' The parrot, which has been sucked up by the vacuum cleaner, is repeating the words of the housewife. On a chair lies a newspaper featuring an article on Avian flu. The reference is to the anxiety about the potential for a bird flu epidemic.
