A tantalizing young woman named Kelly 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. Kelly tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything
else she could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary. Finally, Kelly was
fed up and she yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back.
Kelly shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder.
Kelly, in desperation, threw up her 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 she'd hurt the parrot, Kelly quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto Kelly'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."
Kelly was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As she 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?"
