#003 ernest the canary


"Ernest is one of the best health and safety inspectors in the business. Report writing, investigating and measuring all manner of noise levels, height restrictions and vibrations is his thing. He takes responsibility for protecting everyone around him very seriously (much to the annoyance of his three sons who sometimes sneak out to the park without their helmets on, to hit each other with sticks). Luckily for them, and all of his friends, co-workers and wife, he has a favourite and very distinctive tune, which he whistles while going about his work, so it’s quite easy to quickly cease whatever seemingly dangerous activity you’re up to and get your feathers straight in time." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
