John’s BAD 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 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 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 spoke, very softly, “May I ask what the turkey did?”
