Happy Thanksgiving

The Thankful Parrot

A man named Jack received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse and limited vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.

As he was experienced with birds, Jack 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, Jack was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. Jack shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder. Jack, in desperation, 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 suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, Jack quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto Jack’s outstretched arms and said,

"I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and even cruder actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my disrespectful and unforgivable behavior."

Jack was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude and vocabulary. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?”
