A pet shop


A man went into a pet shop one day. “I’d
like a parrot that talks”, he said. The shop assistant said “I’m sorry sir, but
you have to teach your parrot to speak.” So the man bought a parrot and took it home
with him. A week later he went back to the pet shop. “My parrot still doesn’t speak”,
he said. “Oh, really? Well, perhaps he’s bored. You should buy this little swimming
pool. He can have a swim and then he might talk”, explained the shop assistant. So,
he bought the swimming pool and went home. The next week the man came back again. “He’s
still not talking” he said. “Oh dear. Buy this mirror. He’ll swim in the pool,
get out and look at himself, then talk.” So the man bought the mirror and went away.
A week later he came back a final time. “My parrot is dead”, he said. “Oh, dear! I’m
very sorry about that, sir – but tell me, before he died, did he say anything?” “Yes
he did. But only one thing.” “Really? What was that?” “Give me food!”
