FWD:The Parrot

Post  byrd45 on Thu Feb 19, 2009 8:09 am

A young man named John received a parrot as an early

Chris tmas 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


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 desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed

the bird and shoved 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 behavior.'

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 enquire as

to what the turkey did?'
