My New Parrot

Recently 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 was fed up and I yelled at the parrot.

The parrot yelled back.

I shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder. So, in
desperation, I threw up my hands, 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 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 behaviour."

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 behaviour, the bird continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"
Merry Christmas :D :D :D :D :D
