Man Cuts Off Ears to Look Like His Pet Parrot, Now He Wants a Beak!
"A man who had his face and eyeballs tattooed to look like his pet parrots has gone a step further - by cutting off his ears.
Ted Richards, 56, is obsessed by pets Ellie, Teaka, Timneh, Jake and Bubi and has his face tattooed with colourful feathers.
But the animal lover - who has 110 tattoos, 50 piercings and a split tongue - has now had both his ears removed by a surgeon in a six hour operation.
Eccentric Mr Richards has given his severed ears to a friend who "will appreciate them" and is now planning to find a surgeon prepared to turn his nose into a beak."
When I got a small tattoo on my arm some forty years ago, it conferred upon me the status of a rebel. Tattoos, and body modifications, are now mainstream, and nobody bats an eye, when a person sports a new tattoo on their neck, or face.
But an individual who tattoos his eyeballs, splits his tongue, has horns implanted on his forehead, and has his ears removed by a surgeon so he can resemble his pet parrots is a freak, by anybody`s definition.
Richards doesn`t need to undergo a lobotomy so his brain will resemble a bird`s brain, he`s already a brain-challenged freak.
Birds don`t have a penis, why doesn`t he chop off his manhood so he will resemble a bird or Caitlyn Jenner?
All I can say is at least homeboy doesn`t have a pet slug.
