My New Parrot
Recently I received a parrot as a gift.The parrot had a bad attitude
and an even worse vocabulary.
Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and
laced with profanity.I tried and tried to change the bird's attitude
by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and
anything else I could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.
Finally, I was fed up and I yelled at the parrot.
The parrot yelled back.
I shook the parrot and he got angrier and even ruder.
So, in desperation, I threw up my hands, grabbed the bird and
put him in the freezer.
For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked
and screamed.Then suddenly there was total quiet.
Not a peep was heard for over a minute.
Fearing that I'd hurt the parrot,
I quickly opened the door to the freezer.The parrot
calmly stepped out onto my out
stretched arms and said
"I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and
I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and
I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and
I was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.
As I was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic
change in his behavior, the bird continued,
"May I ask what the turkey did?"
HAPPY EARLY THANKSGIVING!
