Bad Parrot
« on: November 22, 2012, 03:45:03 PM »
A young man named John received a parrot as a
gift. The
Parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse

Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude,
And laced with profanity. John tried and tried to
Change the bird's attitude by consistently saying
Polite words, playing soft music and anything
else he could
Think of to 'clean up' the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot.
The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the
Parrot got angrier and even more rude. John, in
Threw up his 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 he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly
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 sincerely remorseful for my
Inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do
Everything I can to correct my rude and
unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's

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

"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . . Anything can happen, child. Anything can be"
