A parrot man is someone who is only known for one thing. It refers to someone with a gimmick, who loses all attention when he loses his gimmick.
It is based on Hale and Pace's story of a man who regularly took his parrot to a bar and was wildly popular. One day he showed up without the parrot, to find no one cared about him.
One should be careful not to become a Parrot Man.
Eggers: Hey, why don't you whip out your harp and play us all a tune, buddy.
Feral Meryl: I'm not going to play it every time we're in da club, I don't want to become a Parrot Man.
