Parrot JokeA young man called John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a really bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude.
John 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 got fed up and yelled at the parrot, but the parrot just yelled back.
John shook the parrot, but the parrot got more angry and rude.
In his desperation, John 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 might have hurt the bird, John quickly opened the freezer door. 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 behaviour".
John was stunned by the change in the bird's attitude. He was just about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behaviour, when it spoke up very softly and said: "May I ask what the turkey did?"
