Ron came through with an old, but still-funny Thanksgiving joke that just about everyone except for members of PETA can find some humor in:
A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word from the parrot was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. John tried in vane to change the bird’s attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and many other things he could think of to clean up the bird’s vocabulary.
John was feed up and yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even more rude. In desparation John grabbed the parrot and put it in the freezer. For a while John could hear the parrot squawking, kicking and screeming. suddenly there was complete quiet. Not a sound for more than a minute.
John was worried that he had harmed the parrot so he quickly opened the freezer. the parrot calmly stepped out into John’s outstretched arms and said, “I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I’m sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior.”
John was stunned at the change in attitude.
As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the parrot spoke up, very softly, asking “Excuse me, may I ask what the turkey did?”
Thanks, Ron! And Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Readers, if you have any other TG jokes, we’re happy to have them as comments.
