In this video, a parrot chews on seeds printed with punctuation marks. A radio on the shelf in the background broadcasts the news of an unfolding football match. As the game (and video) progresses, the bird eats all of the remaining punctuation. Punctuation is, in a sense, never spoken, and here provides the visual accompaniment to disembodied action and voice. The parrot, as a silent but potential non-human speaker, here breaks down relentless stream of vocalized reporting.
