    Your Parrot is Dead!

    At dawn the telephone rings, 'Hello, Senor Rod? This is Ernesto, the caretaker at your country house.'

    'Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?'

    'Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your parrot, he is dead.'

    'My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?'

    'Si, Senor, that's the one.'

    'Damm! Thats a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. What did he die from?'

    'From eating the rotten meat, Senor Rod.'

    'Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?'

    'Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse.'

    'Dead horse? What dead horse?'

    'The thoroughbred, Senor Rod.'

    'My prize thoroughbred is dead?'

    'Yes Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart.'

    'Are you insane?? What water cart?'

    'The one we used to put out the fire, Senor.'

    'Good Lord!! What fire are you talking about, man??'

    The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught fire.'

    'What the hell?? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed because of a candle??!!'

    'Yes, Senor Rod.'

    'But there's electricity at the house! What was the candle for?'

    'For the funeral, Senor Rod.'


    'Your wife's, Senor Rod', she showed up very late one night and I thought she was a thief, and having no ammunition I hit her with your new Sako .308 rifle.'

    SILENCE................... LONG SILENCE.....................

    'Ernesto, if you put one scratch on my new Sako .308 hunting rifle, your going to be in deep, deep trouble!'

    A man that hits somebody with a new Sako should be whipped.

    Since I do not have a parrot, a thoroughbred, or a mansion I would have to relate to the rifle also. Good one it made me smile.
  6. This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be!!
