Telltale Autumn Sale

Pyrite Parrot of Petaluma

Why does no one ever use the parrot's FULL name? As a Petaluma High School teacher, I must register my protest!

Go Trojans!

    You forgot to say "of Petaluma". As in, "Ms. Smith of Petaluma". You fail at your own point. :p

    Also leave science out of this. Science never did anything to you!

    Hey nice! I was never a Trojan (went to SVHS for some reason I can't quite remember, after going to Grant and PJHS) but my mom was principal at Carpe Diem for quite a few years, and then was principal at McNear Elementary.

    So, who had the idea of Petaluma for the Parrot? The first time I heard it was quite the giggle...

    No clue. We're just South of Petaluma in San Rafael. I imagine it was Stemmle, as he wrote the first episode, but I know a few Telltale folks live there.

    Science pretty much pays for everything of mine right now too. Well, organizing for the sake of science at least.

    Pyrite is commonly reffered to as Fools Gold, as back in ye ol' gold diggin' days pyrite was often confused with as gold.

    Is it renowned for its ability to self-animate and speak?

    Nope, that's just good old-fashioned voodoo.

    So it's a TALKING Pyrite Parrot.

    Still don't understand how/why it returned to its parrot shape after being melted down into a tortoise.

    Because in chapter 2 Guybrush
    melted the Pyrite Parrot of Petaluma and dropped it in a hole shaped like a tortoise.

    I still don't understand how DeSinge got it after it was lost inside of a manatee.

    ToMI is both entertaining and educational.

    Because parrots don't have wrists. :D

    It was presumably lost during the "we're all being eaten" bit, and everything washes up on Flotsam eventually...

    but it's going to be making a return from the dead appearance right?
  • edited November 2009
    I could just imagine Guybrush dropping on his knees and screaming "IT JUST WON'T DIE!!" at the sight of the Pyrite Parrot, followed by it saying "*squawk* It's me! Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate."

    I love people who do their research!

    There was actually T-Shirts for awhile with an ugly yellow bird on them, and the caption "Pet A Luma"... Thank goodness the Pyrite Parrot of Petaluma looks nothing like them.

    Of course it will, in the Rise of the Pyrite God

    As the powdered pyrite parrot (of petaluma) manifests a million billion 'consciousnesses' that all scream (albeit quietly as they are all just atomised powder) *SQUARK* It's me Guybrush Threepwood! Mighty Pirate. (Puntuation may vary)

    And why it returned to being a parrot shape? And also why DeSinge thought it would be fun to tie it to the top of the mighty horn thing. Thanks :p

    Because the King of the Vacaylians did this to reward Guybrush
    And also why DeSinge thought it would be fun to tie it to the top of the mighty horn thing.
    I assumed this was because it had got caught up there from being buffeted by winds; however, in the plans in DeSinge's lab, Guyrbush was to be hanged there - and, after all, whose name does that Parrot answer to?

    the pyrite parrot getting lost inside of the manatee was my way of shaking my first at mike and mark for passing it along to joe and i and into the third episode. pyrite albatross, more like. so i tried to write the most throw-away line i could, emphasizing it was GONE FOREVER to really stick it to mike and mark. alas, it came back with a bang (more of a buzzsaw really) in ep 4.

    Haha, was it resurrected at the end of Chapter 2 just to make things difficult for you guys with chapter 3? lol

    I've been to Petaluma once. It was actually quite nice there. :)

    there was definitely "seriously, that thing isn't gone yet?" talk, considering its resurrection is so...bizarre. but now the series wouldn't be the same without the little guy.

    Only when it isn't being observed! (I didn't see the 'quark' in squark hehe)
