Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Thursday, March 16


A stage magician, working on a cruise ship, was able to do the same show over and over because the audience was different each week. Just one problem: the captain's parrot saw the shows each week, and, gradually, began to learn how the magician did every trick.

And, being a parrot without a shred of empathy and not a more kindly human being, once he understood, he starts shouting in the middle of the show:

Look, it is not the same hat!
Look, he is hiding the flowers under the table!
Look, hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades!

The magician was furious, but powerless. This was, after all, the captain's parrot.

Then the ship sinks. The magician finds himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot. They stare at each other for a long time with mutual hatred, but neither utters a word. A day passes this way. Another day. Another.

Finally, on the fourth day, the parrot can no longer hold back: "Okay, I give up. Where is the fucking ship?"
