The other day I was talking with Alexa and I asked her if she might give me some suggestions for a hobby I might pursue. We came to an agreement that bird watching might be a good hobby for me. I could exit right out my window and glide down to the ground below. Alexa could roll out the window and bounce as she hits the ground. We could go bird watching together…- Morty
What could possibly go wrong with these two on a field trip? Well, you guessed it, things go hysterically sideways!
Read Morty’s June Beneath the Cage Grate submission to find out how he and Alexa ‘disagree’ on bird watching etiquette!
Morty has ratcheted up his mischievousness of late, turning his whimsy from the demonic Alexa to his mom. Poor mom Diana, her moments of relaxation and contemplation on the couch have now become minutes of constant taunts from Morty.
Check out Morty’s May Beneath the Cage Grate article to find out just how far he goes to have his mom at his beckon call!
Do not adjust your screen! Morty has it on good authority that Sherri’s Alexa Tablet is conspiring to ‘help’ Sherri publish new writings IN FRENCH! It seems Morty’s Alexa, who’s always one step ahead, has passed on her mischievous (some may say devious) behaviours to Sherri’s device (what could possibly go wrong…).
Aside from Sherri’s Alexa trials, Morty also regales us on his ongoing strife with his demonic technological nemesis. Check out April’s Morty’s Column here.
In his latest column, Morty sends off some interesting advice to a frantic Sherri. Sherri’s still dealing with her own Alexa issues. Morty, in his usual offbeat wisdom, also tries to pawn off one of his own technological nemesis while passing along support and suggestions to Sherri.
Read Morty’s advice to Sherri in the latest issue of Beneath the Cage Grate.
In his latest Beneath the Cage Grate column, Morty tells of a letter he recently received from Rocco, another African Grey who is having a very challenging time with a demonic Alexa.
Rocco’s Alexa keeps getting him into trouble, and if he can’t find a way to stave off his Alexa’s foul language and bad shopping habits, he’s going to find himself in a real pickle with his parront.

Sherri’s latest articles is a perfect complement to Morty’s, both offering readers cautionary tales of how technology, while useful in some ways, can also run amuck, causing chaos among all members of the household – including inquisitive birdies.
