Rocco and his owner/Photo from Facebook

Just another hazard of having that device in your home.

From Fox 5 NY: A parrot has fallen in love with his owner’s Amazon Alexa — but keeps using it to order shopping.

So far Rocco the African Grey, from Didcot, Oxfordshire, U.K., has demanded treats such as strawberries, watermelon, raisins, broccoli and ice cream.

He has also ordered a kite, light bulbs and even a kettle.

Rocco likes to dance too and tells the voice-activated device to play favorite tunes. Sometimes they are slow numbers, but he generally prefers rock.
