    A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was different each
    week, so the magician did the same tricks over and over again.

    One problem: The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and
    began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he
    understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show:
    "Look, it's not the same hat!"
    "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table."
    "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?"

    The magician was furious, but couldn't do anything. It was, after all,
    the captain's parrot. Then the ship sank.

    The magician found himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the
    sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot. They stared at each other
    with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day and
    then another and then another. Finally on the fourth day, the parrot
    could not hold back:

    "OK, I give up. Where's the f***ing ship?
