How Appropriate

Heidi has a toy bird she has spent the entire day with. Everything she has done the bird has had to do too. This evening I gave in to the imagination a bit and addressed a few sentences to the bird.
"Oh, he can't understand you", says Heidi, "and he can't talk."
"He can't?" I inquire.
"No." comes the answer, "So his name is Babel".
