    Ted Richards loves his parrots so much that he had his face and eyeballs tattooed to look more them.

    If that wasn't bird-brained enough, the 56-year-old resident of Bristol, England, went even further by having his ears removed in a six-hour operation.

    "I think it looks really great. I love it. It's the best thing that has happened to me. I am so happy it's unreal, I can't stop looking in the mirror," Richards told South West News Service. "I've done it because I want to look like my parrots as much as possible. I've had my hair long for so many years my ears have been covered up."

    Richards said he used to be teased about his ears when he was younger, but insists that's not the reason why he went under the knife.

    The retired shoe factory worker may like his new look, but admits he had a hard time keeping his glasses in place until he had two small metal pins added to the side of his head.

    "I went to the supermarket the other day and when I went in I said 'Blimey, it's so windy out there it blew my ears off,' and everybody had a chuckle," he told SWNS.

    Richards has given his severed ear tissue to a friend who "will appreciate them," and has set his sights on another flight of fancy: finding a surgeon who can turn his nose into a beak.

    if a man can cut off his cock to look more like a woman why can't he cut off his ears to look like a parrot? Double standards

    I've got bad hearing in the first place. I don't understand why somebody would do something to make theirs worse on purpose. Those were put there for a reason.
