Twenty-one-year veteran fair pirate, Parrot Man Chris Biro of Moab, Utah & a former Lewis County resident, explained the Dollar Bill Trick portion of his show to The Chronicle Wednesday.
The trick involves asking audience members to hold up a dollar bill. Biro then releases one of his parrots, who flies out and snatches the green-back from the unsuspecting owners hand. The parrot then flies back to the stage and drops the dollar bill in a large glass jar.
But does he then return the legal tender? Oh no, Biro replied. You don’t understand this pirating thing, do you?Michael Wagar – Editor
