A cunning plan to keep you amused

If you are bored with retirement, have a bit of time on your hands, need a bit of company and have a little excess cash, here's a good way to keep yourself amused.

Buy a parrot, then train it to say, "Help me! I've been turned into a parrot!"


  1. True story : I knew a woman with a pet parrot who taught him to say,
    "I talk, can you fly?"

    1. My favourite response and the only one I can be bothered to comment on tonight.

  2. Parrots are by no means top of my list of desired pets and come a long way after the farmer, dogs, cats, and hens.

  3. I wouldn't be able to tolerate all the small squawk.

  4. You could train yours to say "cheer up mate".

  5. I feel sorry for all Parrots who live their lives locked away in a tiny cage, regardless of what they can or cannot say.

  6. A woman buys a parrot as a surprise gift for her family and puts it in the corner of the living room to wait for them to come home. She bought it from a brothel which went out of business, so was warned that the language may be a bit fruity.

    the first thing the bird said was, "A new brothel with a new madam - nice!'

    The daughters come home and the parrot says, "Two new girls too. Things are looking up!"

    The husband comes home and the parrot says, "Hello Frank!"
