I did a google search (as Laurie suggested) of "sleeping parrot" and "resting parrot"

Sleeping parrot: I scrolled through 4 pages before I found any Python reference. 1 hit, to a toy collection.
Resting parrot: 2nd hit as well as 5th, 6th and 7th hits, all on the 1st page.

As I said yesterday, my tuppence is well spent - but if there's a vote called, I vote for "resting"

Being that the sketch is universally called the Dead Parrot Sketch (to
the point of the 20th anniversary collection  called 'Dead Parrot
Sketch Not Included' I have to vote for at least Resting, if not Dead.

A good test of cultural knowledge:

google 'sleeping parrot' and 'dead parrot'.  At least 'resting' is in
the sketch.
