Happy Thanksgiving from the Silent Armory

from Brienus, I can see him laughing at this...

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 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 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 to

> John, "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. Just 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?"
