Bad Parrot

Sharing this email:

BAD PARROT


Several years ago I 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. I tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music, and anything else I could think of to 'clean up' the bird's vocabulary.


Finally, I became fed up and I yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. I shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder. In desperation, I threw up my 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 I'd hurt the parrot, I quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto my outstretched arm and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."


I was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.


As I was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up and, very softly, said "May I ask what the turkey did?"


HAPPY THANKSGIVING
