NFL teams are having interesting characters announce their selections during Day 3 of the draft on Saturday. Most of us figured that it couldn’t be any worse than Vince Young’s attempt to announce the Tennessee Titans’ second-round pick.
We were sadly mistaken.
In announcing their fourth-round selection, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers decided to employ a bunch of pirates on a pirate ship as well as a parrot to make the pick. The issue here is that said parrot did absolutely nothing.
Check it out as we all attempt to examine just how America in 2018 turned out this way.
The parrot didn’t speak. Way to oversell. pic.twitter.com/jSU6xTlYZr

This needs to go away and never come back. It’s like the fidget spinner craze. The purpose of it was not ever really known. But it seemed to be interesting until we realized there was no real use for it.
People on Twitter agreed.
Day 3 and we're all mad at a mute parrot
the draft is amazing

Cancel the entire Draft, restart, and make the parrot try again

I have one remaining question. What did we do in life to deserve this blasphemy?
