The Parrot

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every work out of the bird's moouth was rude obnoxious and filled 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 the "clean-up" the bird's vocabulary.

Finally,John was fed up and he yelled at the bird. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angriet and even ruder. John, in despiration, threw up his hands, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then sudeenly there was total quite. Not a peep was heard for over a minute. Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly open 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 sincerrly remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgiving behavior.

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot waht had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued,,,,

"May I ask what the turkey did?"
