Teaching Old Birds New Tricks! November 23, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Animals, Humor, Joke.
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 saying only polite words, playing soft music, and encouraging the bird to “clean up” its vocabulary.
Finally, John had enough and yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot. In response, the parrot got angrier and even ruder.
John, in desperation, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.
Then, nothing. Total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.
Fearing that he’d hurt the parrot, John threw open 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 transformation in the bird’s attitude.
As John was about to ask the parrot what had caused such a dramatic shift in his attitude, the bird said, “May I ask what the turkey did?”
Aah . . . that’s better!

To those in the States ~> HAPPY (almost) THANKSGIVING!
I am grateful for what I am and have.
My thanksgiving is perpetual . . .
O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches.
No run on my bank can drain it
for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.
~ Henry David Thoreau
