Teaching The Parrot Right From Wrong

Carol received a parrot for her birthday. This parrot was fully grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive. Those that weren't expletives were, to say the least rude.

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

Nothing worked. She yelled at the bird and the bird got worse. She shook the bird and the bird got more angry and more rude.

Finally, in a moment of desperation, Carol put the parrot in the freezer. For a few moments she heard the bird squawking, kicking, and screaming - then suddenly there was quiet.

Carol was frightened that she might have hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out onto Carol'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."

Carol 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?"

Believe it or not I actually knew a family that had a parrot that said bad words. It was so bad that my friends mom rarely ever invited friends over. On the rare occasion that there were guests they would hide the bird in my friends bedroom. During lulls in conversation though you could still hear the bird in the bedroom cussing up a storm. Some times visitors would think somebody was locked up and trying to get out. Then my friends mom would end up having to explain about the bird anyway. ;o) Great site! enjoyed my visit.
