The Parrot

Friday, December 31, 2004


David received a parrot for his birthday.

This parrot was fully grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary.
Every other word was an expletive (curse word). Those that weren't
expletives were, to say the least rude.

David tried hard to change the bird's attitude and was constantly
saying polite words, playing soft music, anything he could think of
to try and set a good example.

Nothing worked.

He yelled at the bird and the bird got worse. He shook the bird
and the bird got more angry and more rude. Finally, in a moment
of desperation, David put the parrot in the freezer.

For a few moments he heard the bird squawking, kicking, and
screaming, then suddenly there was quiet. David was frightened
that he might have hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer
door.

The parrot calmly stepped out onto David's extended arm and said:
"I'm sorry that I might have offended you with my language and action
and I ask your forgiveness. I will endeavor to correct my behavior."

David was astonished at the bird's change in attitude and was about to
ask what had made such a dramatic change when the parrot continued:

"May I ask what the chicken did?"
