What happens when a parrot buys a kettle on Amazon

When Amazon launched its Alexa virtual assistant in 2014, it probably didn’t think that a bird would expose a potentially significant legal issue with the device.

But an African grey parrot named Rocco, living in Blewbury, England, appears to have done just that.

Because, if you read George Orwell's 1984, the explanation is in the first part of the novel... I can explain it here but a Google search will also turn up the relevant chapter.
