Andy Richter, Conan O’Brien’s adored co-host, took to Twitter on May 27th to share a predicament. Not one he had, but rather his dog, Kiwi.
We’ve had our parrot, Nacho, for about 10 yrs now, and every Spring he has about a 2 wk mating urge. It’s super annoying. In previous yrs, I have been the object of his procreation obsession, but this yr he has decided our dog Kiwi is his new mate. pic.twitter.com/Jlh7S2StGy— Andy Richter (@AndyRichter) May 27, 2018
As Richter explains, his parrot, affectionately named after the most delicious food in the world, goes through a two-week mating cycle. While Nacho typically latches onto Richter for this period of time, this year, he decided to have his affaire du coeur with the family’s disinterested dog, Kiwi.
While the Richter family dealt with an overly attached parrot, the world was given a look into this adorable union via Richter’s official Twitter page. The funnyman shared a series of images showing Nacho’s affection for Kiwi as the parrot rarely left the pooch’s side.
While Kiwi seems indifferent to the situation, it’s undeniably cute. The parrot shows up everywhere the dog is, regardless of whether or not he’s getting any attention.
Of course it didn’t take long for people to fall in love with the budding friendship.
Others have a little advice for Nacho and Richter, stating the parrot should “meet a girl parrot for a two week fling.”
Can’t he meet a girl parrot for a two week fling? He’s clearly got a lot to give!— Red Berry (@missredberry84) May 29, 2018
Andy, can you get him a girl parrot, for crying out loud? Have a heart, man.— Secret ‘Society’ Squirrel (@ssquirrel007) May 28, 2018
Amidst the love story, you have your oversensitive internet users that really should take a break from being perpetually outraged.
NOT NICE TO LET THIS PARROT GO WITHOUT A MATE. YOU ARE CRUEL, SELFISH.— Opinionated (@BeBatterBest) May 29, 2018
And the occasional opinionated twitter user that got way too caught up on the naming of Richter’s pets.
Nacho's wooing a Kiwi sounds like some sort of strange food fusion.😂— marie cathleen (@Marie_Cathleen) May 29, 2018
Bit ironic one's a bird the other a Chihuahua-- you'd think the dog would be Nacho. But is instead a Kiwi -- a New Zealand parrot or fuzzy fruit?
...very adorable whatever the name or species I'm #Smitten too
If we get anything lasting out of this unusual union, let us hope it’s this image of Kiwi looking like she just realized why Nacho has been following her around all this time.
