A woman went to a pet shop and immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot.
There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00.
“Why so little?” she asked the pet store owner.
The owner looked at her and said, “Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff.”
The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird anyway.
She took it home and hung the bird’s cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something.
The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said, “new house, new madam.”
The woman was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought “that’s really not so bad.”
When her teenage daughter returned from school, the bird saw her and said, “New house, new madam, new girl.”
The girl and the woman were a bit offended but then began to laugh about the situation
considering how and where the parrot had been raised.
Moments later, the woman’s husband Karl came home from work.
The bird looked at him and said, “Hi Karl.”
‘What’s the moral to this story?
No, it’s not that it’s best to habit an establishment without a talking parrot if you want to keep your business secret.
The moral is: Be sure, your sins will find you out.*
