Polly Want Some Manners?

A quiet gentleman buys a parrot and finds, to his mortification, that the parrot cusses like a sailor.

One day, it gets to be too much, so the man grabs the bird, shakes it, and yells, "QUIT IT!" But this just makes the bird mad, and his language even worse.

Next, the man tries locking the bird in a kitchen cabinet. But the parrot screeches and claws so much that the man lets him out, with his foul beak intact.

Finally, the man tosses the bird in the freezer and slams the door. At first, there is a terrible din, then all goes quiet.

Concerned, the man opens the door. The bird calmly climbs onto his outstretched arm and says, "I am very sorry about the trouble I gave you. I'll do my best to improve my vocabulary from now on."

The man is astounded--and confused--by the bird's transformation.

Then the parrot leans in quietly and says, "By the way, what did the chicken do?"
