A surreal dud, con or fraud.

Probably the most famous Monty Python sketch.
A customer returns to a pet shop where he was originally conned into buying a dead parrot.
Regardless of the extremes the customer goes to prove the parrot is dead (he even whacks the dead bird off a hard surface) the seller insists the parrot is as still as alive as it was previous.

Also known as the blue parrot sketch.
"There's no use trying to sell that car to me. It's as dead as a parrot."
