Do you want to have some fun?' " "That's terrible!" exclaimed the holy man, "but I have the answer to your problem. You can put them with my two male talking parrots. I myself taught them to read the bible and say the rosary." The woman collects her parrots and puts them in the holy mans parrot cage. "Hi, we're prostitutes. Do you want to have some fun?" the parrots say. One male parrot looks over at the other and exclaims, "Put the beads away. Our prayers have been answered!"

The pet store owner tells him he has just what he's looking for; a beautiful parrot named Chet that can sing Christmas carols. He ushers the husband over to a colourful but very quiet bird.

A young man's mother was now living in Miami Beach and he didn't get to see her as often as he would like. His father was no longer around and he felt saddened for his mother being lonely. So for his mother’s birthday, he purchased a very rare parrot, trained to speak seven languages. He made arrangements for a courier service to deliver the bird to his dear mother. After a few days he called. "Hey Mom, what do you think of the bird?" "The bird was good, but a little tough. I should have cooked it longer." "You ate the bird? Didn’t you know it was of rare breed and was very expensive? It had a talent where it could speak seven languages!" "Oh, excuse me replied the mom - if the parrot was so smart, why didn't it say something when I put it in the oven?"
