“The Answer is in the Freezer”

“The Answer is in the Freezer”

 

 

 

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 ruder. John, in desperation, 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 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 continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"'

Good morning Joe.  A true awaking moment for the parrot.  I'm sure his attitude changed forever.

Hi Joe Petrowsky 

We tend to learn from observing the world around us. I got a good chuckle from this one.

Top of the morning Joe.  I had heard this but could not remember the punch line.  And a good one it is.  Getting older and forgetting things might not be so bad.  There are a lot of good jokes I would not mind hearing again fresh.   M

Hi Joe Petrowsky Some really need an experience like this to finally get the message. I can think of a few Millennials that could get some value from an experience like this.
