    Recently I received a parrot as a gift.
    The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word
    out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.

    I tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying
    only polite words, playing soft music and anything else I could think
    of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.

    Finally, I was fed up and I yelled at the parrot.
    The parrot yelled back.
    I shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder.

    So, in desperation, I threw up my hands, grabbed the bird and put him
    in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and
    screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet.
    Not a peep was heard for over a minute.
    Fearing that I'd hurt the parrot, I quickly opened the door to the freezer.

    The parrot calmly stepped out onto my 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
    fullyintend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

    I was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.
    As I was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change
    in his behavior, the bird continued,

    "May I ask what the turkey did?"
