‘Wow! Mint condition partridge in pear tree’

12days1 Banterist has a humorous satire posted called “The Twelve Days of eBay,” with each of the dozen presents being auctioned in eBay-speak. The listing for the partridge in a pear tree reads, “You are bidding on a partridge in a pear tree. The partridge is self-feeding as it lives on pears. Very low maintenance too because he fertilizes the tree. Just needs water on occasion. The pears are delicious if you can wrangle one from the partridge. I would keep it but my lease forbids more than one pet and I have a cat. Recommend insurance because I don’t know how well DHL ships birds.”
