Parrot Attitude Adjustment

Parrot Attitude Adjustment

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 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?"


It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

that is good, I'd answer with something like he didn't take the warning you got.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Hilarious

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
