A story I was told to have a laugh
A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. It had a bad attitude and its language was profane and vulgar.
John tried in vain to clean it up.
He yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back.
In desperation he shoved the bird into the refrigerator. The parrot squawked and screamed. Then, suddenly, silence.
John quickly opened the door and the parrot stepped out onto John's outstretched arm and said: "I have offended you with my rude language and I apologise unconditionally. I will never swear again."
John was stunned and was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change when the bird continued: "May I ask what the chicken in there did?"
