Episode One

Paca, The Ugly Betty of the Parrot World

 By Gabriel Quintero  Friday, June 5, 2009

Parrots of AnapoimaWhile soap opera fans the world over are watching the never-ending misadventures of “Bety la fea” (Ugly Betty), there is another every day soap opera going on in a certain Anapoima mandarino tree.

Ugly Betty, a telenovela filmed in Colombia, written by Fernando Gaitan and produced between 1999 through 2001 by the Colombian network RCN, features Beatriz Aurora Pinzon Solano, an unattractive—but very brainy woman—working for the Eco Moda company, who is constantly mocked by her prettier workmates.

In the parrot soap opera of all time, poor Paca, wife of runaround Paco, is the Ugly Betty of the Mandarino Tree, where she lives with Paco, Roberto and Lorenzo.  Paca only became “Ugly Betty” when strumpet Rosa showed up and started hitting on Paco.

In the Triangle in the Mandarino Tree version, the latest episode is that Paca, got Roberto and Lorenzo to gang up on Rosa to kick her out of the tree.  Paca was fed up to here with hubby giving wolf whistles to the much prettier Rosa.

Will the Paco and Paca love nest be more peaceful now that Paca’s feathered friends put the run to Rosa?

Rosa looks pretty sad here wandering off to other pastures.

Fat Hint: Better be careful to hide the lipstick on your beak, Senor Paco, because Paca just found out that Rosa didn’t go any further away than the tree next door.
