Pop Goes the Weasel...sort of

As I mentioned in a post earlier this week, I have been taking movies of my cockatiel buddy Gabriel. A friend who saw my post asked "What about 'Pop Goes the Weasel'?". Let me explain: Gabriel has been trying to master this tune for over 20 years (literally) and has never really gotten it. He tries, though--tries VERY hard. What comes out is more sort of "Variations on a theme of 'Pop Goes the Weasel' "--like Bach or some riffing jazz master. Or maybe the wires in Gabriel's bird brain start cross-firing. In any case, it is very cute. So without further ado, take it away, Gabriel:

That's me whistling (poorly) in the middle, giving him a prompt. Maybe that's why he's so muddled...
