He says parrot, she says rifle equipped with scope and bowie knife bayonet. What more is there to know?

I could see taking a photo like that and putting it in a place that is visible from the outside. See how many people break into your house after seeing that!!!! 🙂
ummm…”is that a parrot in your hand, or are you happy to see me?”
How the hell did she get a gun (with a knife on it no less) into a portrait studio?
Here at the Ted Nugent School for Hunting, we like to start out small…
I just keep asking my why …. why …. why? WHY?
In all seriousness, this looks like my dads cousin larry and his wife. Circa the late 70’s early 80’s in Northern New Jersey. They would have been holding a little dog though.
If you think this is awkward, you really, really don’t want to see the ‘after’ picture.
The parrot must be in the witness protection program.
It feels like Photo 1, in a series of instructional images.
“Step One. Pick up your bayonet and parrot.”
“Step Two… ” well, I really don’t want to know Step Two.
This is the best photo on here, ever. This is the kind of photo someone should use to spark a creative writing class with: take this picture, and at the end of the script, this should be the engagement photo of the two protagonists. Agnieizka i Daniel (sic) have nothing on these two.
I thought people practiced shooting at clay pigeons – not parrots!
Definitely a hardcore parrotshooter. Airborne!
Say HELLO to my LEETLE Friend!!
Polly want an…AK47? Also, I’m looking @ the photo and wonder, “Let’s see. She must be going into battle with her “enforcer” gun by her side but she doesn’t stand a chance of surviving a skirmish. The enemy will be smarter and have a much better chance of surviving because they will have a normal-lengthed rifle.” Can you say rifle envy?
My thought is what in the world was the photographer thinking when they walked in and said” We’re here to get our picture taken but we want this in the picture also…”
He was thinking “This chick has a rifle. I’ll take any freaking picture they want.”
these people know how to party!
Carla told Dommie she wanted a nice big “karat” on her finger for her anniversary. Donnie heard, “parrot”. Carla was going to make sure Dommie never made that mistake again.
I know who I’d bet on in a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors…
THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!!
LMAO! Good one!
no, he’s not dead, he’s resting!
You nailed it to the perch!
My first thought was “wildlife smugglers”.. but then again, why would widlife smugglers have a portrait done.. unless its for their business card.. 😉
That is SO funny!
Whatever party these two were going to in 1983 was, apparently, one that needed some livening up!
I wish these were my parents.
OMG. People are so funny..
If Jimmy Buffett and Ted Nugent ever start touring together, these two are ready.
LOL!!! nailed it!
Isn’t everyone a Buffett/Nugent fan? LMAO
At least we can all agree on aviator glasses!
She said to bring the Clay pigeon, he brought polly
Looks like someone brought a parrot to a knife and gun fight.
The parrot will inherit 100 billion dollars given that they keep it alive!
so….they hunt parrots?
Lovely plumage. . . .all three of them.
Polly wants a headshot!
So if there is a break-in, the parrot wakes them up, and she gets the bad guys with her rifle? Are they a team? I’m having a real hard time wrapping my mind around this one.
I agree. My only thought when I saw this was, huh?
The rifle has a flash supressor, fortunately, the camera doesn’t.
I don’t see a purse. Where?
“Let this be your last warning, bird…”
I guess they’re going after bigger parrots next time.
It’s not Ron Jeremy. It’s Horatio Sanz.
Omg! I was thinking the same thing!!! LOL!!!
Do NOT ask if Polly wants a cracker.
Can someone tell me what SNS stands for?
Saturday Night Special
Isn’t that Horatio Sanz?
LOL…that is exactly what I thought! File this under “Skits that didn’t make it on SNL”
That’s precisely what I wanted to know. Too funny.
This is certainly the most ‘uncategorized’ photo on this site. Oh my gosh, that poor bird!
I know these things were once in style: velour shirts for men, weird little moustaches, afros on white folk, color-changing prescription lenses, and the Farrah hairstyle. BUT WHY? Why were they ever in style?
I am also very scared for the life of the bird. And the man, for that matter.
I think the style was purposely in opposition to the fashion styles of the ’60s.
I’m wondering what people will say about our hair and dress in the year 2039. They’ll probably comment on its inability to protect against nuclear fallout.
No, they’ll think it’s great because it’s all back in fashion.
Romeo–You forgot to include the velour. It’s the velour that really completes the whole ensemble.
The met at the Jose Feliciano fan club meeting.
Epic Hair + shades + parrot combo!!!
Epic hair + shades + AK47 + bayonet + scope + parrot + velvet shirt + purse combo 🙂
Smiling with a bird in your hand: nice.
Smiling with a rifle/knife in your hand: creepy.
Forget the gun, the guy, and the bird, why is her purse in the picture?
Do you have to ask why the purse is in the picture. MY GOD MAN SHE HAS A RIFLE!
lol i am more scared of the bird!!!
I was wondering more about the purse myself!
her purse contains the amo and parrot crackers. dont you guys know anything?
I can see how that looks like a purse, but I believe it is actually the strap of the rifle and the handle. So now, why is the knife mounted upside down? Perhaps I’m just being picky.
Yep, you’re right, there’s no purse there.
Correct on the Sling, incorrect on the bayonet. That IS how they mount on the Avtomat Kalashnikova model 47.
Thats where she keeps her C4.
good call. I didn’t even notice the purse. Perhaps it is to hold the extra ammo or bird food?
there is no purse, its the strap from the gun. Why do people pose with their weapons?
To impress their weapon-toting relatives and friends.
And their parrots.
The purse is where she keeps her bananas.
I don’t think that’s a purse. It looks like part of the gun (or maybe an attachment?). I don’t know much about guns, though.
You’re right, it’s the magazine of the gun and the strap. So, those people above who were speculating about the contents of the “purse” were partly right–it is indeed where she keeps her ammo.
Agreed. There’s no purse just a banana clip and the strap from the AK. This pic is one of the best I’ve seen yet on AFP.
I love her smirk. Her hair and glasses are also awesome.
From a technical standpoint, that is NOT the proper placement of a scope. The top handguard in the front of a Kalashnikov is a little loose, if you wiggle it. This is not going to provide any degree of accuracy. Actually, placing a scope ANYWHERE on a Kalashnikov is not going to provide any degree of accuracy. 🙂
So, did they both agree to bring their favorite item to the picture? Or are they planning bird target practice after the photo? Fly bird…fly for your life!
Good luck hitting anything with an AK rigged up like that, let alone a flying bird.
You’re so right! You don’t put a scope on a Kalashnikov, says my hubby. They are made with a lot of slop so they can still function in the mud. A lot of slop means that the scope won’t come back to the same zero between shots, so the bullets won’t hit in the same spot every time.
I’ve always been a big fan of Ron Jeremy. It’s good to see he loves parrots
