    The Parrot

    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 birds 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?"
