I don't suppose "Parrot (Not Dead...Really)" or "Norwegian Blue" are
options, eh?  :)

I agree that "Resting" - although the most-used adjective in the
sketch - just doesn't quite roll off the tongue...but then, neither
does "Sleeping" in my opinion.  I guess, given my druthers, I'd go
with "Stunned."  It's part of the sketch, to satisfy the purists, and
I think it sounds quite a bit better than the other two.
