A Joke For Everyone - The Parrot


A young man named John 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.

John tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only

polite words, by playing soft music and by doing anything else he could think of to clean up the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled

back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder.

John, in despera
tion, threw up his 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 he'd hurt the parrot,

John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out

onto John's outstretched arm and said "I believe I may have offended you

with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my

inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to

correct my rude and unforgivable behaviour."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he 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?"
