Easter Egg-venture, Dingbot Style: Beneath the Cage Grate

Oh dear, it seems Alexa and Roomba’s Easter egg hunt took a couple of wrong, and funny, turns. Morty of course was closely observing their antics from a safe distance, careful to get the whole story whilst not getting his feathers tarnished (or dipped in egg).

Everybirdie should hop on over to Morty’s April column to read about his two roommates’ Easter egg-venture!

Talkin’ Turkey with the Dingbots: Beneath the Cage Grate

Oh dear, it looks like Morty’s arch nemesis Alexa is at it again, wreaking havoc with Morty’s Thanksgiving’ turkey ambitions and planting the seeds for a festive Dingbot Jingles Christmas.

Listening to Alexa regarding cooking the Thanksgiving turkey was Morty’s first mistake….

We’re talkin’ Turkey and Dingbots with our intrepid resident grey chef in the December edition of Beneath the Cage Grate.

If you’re looking for charred turkey cooking tips or how to live uncomfortably with a mouthy bot, Morty’s December 2020 column is for you!

Of Foul Beaks & Bot Sleuths: Beneath the Cage Grate

Morty’s latest Beneath the Cage Grate column finds him wondering about the status of a flock of African Grey parrots in Lincolnshire Park who recently added some shock ‘n awe to their adoring onlookers by sharing some rather off-color language. In his November column, Morty tries to track these characters down to see how they’re faring since their ‘relocation’ due to bad behavior.

While bemusing the antics of his Grey cousins, Morty is at the same time somewhat enjoying the ongoing shenanigans of his crazy bot housemates. Alexa and Roomba are determined to apprehend the tomato thief that continues to terrorize the garden patch, but their detective skills and actions leave Morty both laughing and also trying to defend himself to mum against unfounded accusations of complicity.

A must read!

Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign: Beneath the Cage Grate

20200602_084228Poor Morty, coupled with Lockdown madness and masked humans, his bot buddy Alexa has recently ratcheted up her silliness to a whole new level.

Seems Morty is now being told where to go, what to do and how to do it in Sign form…

If this craziness continues, Morty is going to make his own sign for Alexa, and you can bet it will not be parrot – or bot, friendly 🙂

Find out what Morty has been dealing with of late n the June edition of Beneath the Cage Grate.

Beneath the Cage Grate: That’s Some Fine Toast Indeed!

IMG_20200401_113106What do you get when you combine Morty’s ever-present wit, his best bot buddies and an intriguing new word (corona) – you get  more Morty hilarity and levity of course!

In April’s Beneath the Cage Grate, Morty is educated (by know-it-all Alexa) on the origins of the word ‘Corona’.  He’s also introduced to Roomba’s new tag game buddy.

And FINALLY, Morty gets to snack on a piece of that special toast!

We all know Morty’s recent ‘issues’ with Alexa, so it’s not hard to imagine some of the quirky tips he’s going to pass on to Zack and Bubbles.

Zoom Zoom Alexa: Beneath the Cage Grate

IMG_20191230_140702Morty’s Christmas was a success – mostly.  He was of course showered with toys from Santa Claws, and his two sidekicks also received cool presents from the jolly fellow.

However, Morty is dismayed with one of his roommate’s Christmas haul – and her subsequent experimentation with her new ‘toy’.

Read Morty’s January edition of Beneath the Cage Grate and judge for yourself whether Morty’s Christmas wishes for Alexa and Roomba came true!

Dear Santa…: Beneath the Cage Grate

Dear Santa Claws… Claus

MortyPoor Santa, he has his hands full this year with the Christmas wishes from Alexa, Morty and Roomba as there appears to be some ‘issues’ ruffling a few wires and feathers between them!

The December edition of Beneath the Cage Grate finds Alexa, Morty and Roomba  once again at odds, with their respective Letters to Santa reflecting quite the tryst –  and the lengths each will go to spoil each other’s Christmas celebrations.

It’s also fair to say that Morty’s mom may want to read what her housemates have requested from Santa, before Christmas day arrives, to perhaps avoid the beginnings of a new, chaotic tradition!
