Exploited: President Bob appoints Alice the parrot, who obviously can't say things Bob didn't teach her to say. There's probably An Aesop here.
Defied: Bob starts becoming more and more of a Bunny-Ears Lawyer, and people worry that he's becoming The Caligula. When he comes into the office with a new pet parrot on his shoulder, he sees the worried glances and laughs that he's not going to give it a seat on the council.
Discussed: Bob's country has a stipulation in its written constitution that attempting to raise any non-human to a powerful government position will be grounds for instant dismissal from office.
Conversed: "What kind of constitution does this country have, that this guy has the power to make a parrot his Defense Chief?"
Deconstructed: Realizing that their dear president has gone off the deep end, the senate knife him in the back and appoints a new president. And they cook Alice too, just to show that a parrot isn't meant to hold office.
Reconstructed: Bob's rivals and colleagues humour his eccentricity, thinking it makes him more harmless and gives them more opportunity to seize power themselves.
Played For Drama: Bob's actions are a worrying sign that he might be genuinely losing his grasp of reality, and there are stirrings among the political opposition that this sign of weakness may be a good chance to get rid of him.
