      John and the parrott

      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 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
      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. Nota 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 such a
      dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up, very
      softly, "May I ask what the turkey did?"

      One day a man went to an auction. There, he found an exotic
      parrot. He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept
      bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he went higher and higher and higher.

      Finally, after bidding much more than he had intended, he
      finally won. The bird was his! As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the
      auctioneer, "I sure hope this parrot isn't defective. I'd hate to pay this much
      money only to find out that he can't talk!"

      "Of course he can talk," said the auctioneer. "Who do you
      think kept bidding against you?"
