Smile of the Day

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

The things they learn!

In the window of the pet store was a large, beautiful parrot, and under his cage was a sign that said $50. Intrigued, she went inside: fifty dollars for the parrot? Yes. Did it talk? Yes. Why so little? The owner considered her, then said, "Look, lady, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a brothel, and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff."

She thought about this, but after all how bad could it be? So she bought the bird and took it home, setting up its cage in her living room. The bird looked around the room, then at her. After a moment it said, "New house, new madam."

At first she was a bit shocked at the implication, but then she thought that it was not really so bad. In fact, it was quite funny in its way.

When her two teenage daughters returned from school and the bird saw them, it said, "New house, new madam, new girls."

All three of them were a bit offended, but then they began to laugh. It really was quite a clever bird.

Not long afterward, the woman's husband Keith came home from work. The bird looked at him and said, "Hi, Keith."
