Happy Thanksgiving
« on: November 22, 2014, 08:29:33 AM »

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had
a bad attitude and an even worse  vocabulary.

Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced
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 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 desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the

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 opened 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 attitude.

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?"
