The BAD Parrot.......
A young man named John
received a talking 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 and tried to
change the bird's attitude by consistently saying
only polite words, playing soft music
and 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 more
rude. John, in desperation, threw up
his hand, 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 arms 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
John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.
As he was about to ask the parrot what had made a
dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up, very
softly, "May I ask what the turkey did?"
