Squeaky, the drunk little parakeet

We love this caption on an archive photo from 1949: "Squeaky, a young parakeet, fell into a glass of beer one night. Upon being fished out, she discovered she liked it. Since then, every time beer is in evidence, she screams, squawks and generally makes a nuisance of herself until she is let out of her cage. Squeaky prefers the foam. Under the influence she flies in wobbly circles, wolf whistles, makes a nest in the hair of the nearest person, screams, 'Hello, Joe, whadda ya know?,' and happily sits ringing a little bell in her cage."

We've been there, Squeaky.
