Polly Want a Knocker
After some exhaustive research, I find that this lady is Yvette Dare, a thirties-forties era stripper who trained her macaw to disrobe her. She is a member of The Burlesque Hall of Fame and joins the ranks of Gypsy Rose Lee, Mae West and Yvonne De Carlo, (Lilly Munster, whom I've always had the hots for since pre-puberty).
The fact that there is a Burlesque Hall of Fame is encouraging, but knowing that an innovative entertainer like this chick has been replaced by Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian is more proof that life was far better before television, fuel injection and the internet.
