Her Three Sons

There was a little old lady who was nearly blind. She had three sons, each of whom wanted to prove he was the best son.

Son No. 1 bought her a 15-room mansion.

Son No. 2 bought her a beautiful Mercedes with a chauffeur.

Unable to outspend his brothers, Son No. 3 bought the woman a trained parrot that had been taught over 15 years to memorize the entire Bible. You could mention any verse, and the parrot could quote it word for word. How useful his nearly blind mother would find that!

After receiving her gifts, the old lady said to her first son: “Son, the house is gorgeous, but it’s much too big for me. I don’t really need it, but thank you anyway.”

To the second, she said: “Son, the car is beautiful and has everything you could ever want, but I don’t drive and I really don’t like that driver. So please return it.”

To the youngest, she said: “Son, I just want to thank you for that thoughtful gift. The chicken was small, but very tender and just delicious!”
