A woman goes into a pet shop and enquires to buy a parrot. The assistant tells her that he’s only got one left and that she can have it for $100.
“But,” he added “I must warn you – his previous owner was a Madam in a house of ill repute”.
David received a parrot for his 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.
David tried to change the bird’s attitude and was constantly saying polite words, playing soft music, anything he could think of to try and set a good example. Nothing worked. He yelled at the bird and the bird got worse. He shook the bird and the bird got more angry and more rude.
