Default What will the first words be?

In this year of Shakespeare's anniversary, what will Peta's first literary contribution be?
Taking bets at the moment between:

1) "I can't help being yellow" (10:1)

2) "No thank you, I don't do wet" (56:17)

EXTRA: Later additions to the running order

3) "I'm worried about the economy" (100:1)

4) "Jeg elsker rødgrød med fløde" (4:20)
NB: This sentence approximately means "I love redcurrants with cream". Peta is trying to learn Danish but as actually saying it in Danish is more or less impossible without making oneself sick, this option has rather long odds.

Any takers?

I like the first option better, Peta should be proud of her rich and beautiful yellow colour.

Heeheehee, I'm going to buck the trend and go with option 2 because it really made me chuckle I'm guessing still no progress with the bathing then?

Hi Jan!

Noooooo! Still totally dry cleaning only and getting smellier by the day. Not even her best friend (me) would dare tell her

I've put you down for one euro on No.2 Not Wet.

I would wish you good luck but really hope you don't win...
have no idea how to work out the maths on those odds

I think Peta's first words are going to be:

"I'm the prettiest girl on Talk Budgies!"

Why wasn't that on the list?

I love Shakespeare, therefore I cannot choose

But I like the first one!
Also, Deb's suggestion is spot on

Well, Deb, to be honest, it's well known that we Brits don't like to shout about our attributes...we would rather squirm helplessly and go crawl behind a stone.

So that particular little gem isn't on her list of Good Stuff To Learn. But there's no doubt she thinks it in private!

So--sorry, no bets for you--but thank you for your always-valuable input.

Oh, Star, Peta has been wounded by your rather unkind remark.

But she says she will take it on the beak, like the trouper she is and just ignore it. We can't all be flowery poets, after all. Her personal poetic leanings are rather more towards Pam Ayres, who lives quite close and writes much more earthy and funny verse. AND it's understandable.


So one euro on the Yellow for you.
