A woman was walking down the street to work when she saw a parrot displayed outside a pet store. The parrot called out to her, "Hey lady, you're really ugly!"
The woman was furious, and strode past the store barely able to contain her anger. On the way home from work later that day she saw the same parrot. Again it exclaimed, "Hey lady, you're really ugly!"
This made the woman almost incandescent, and it was only with a great effort that she was able to control herself physically.
The following day she saw the same parrot, and once again it said to her, "Hey lady, you're really ugly!"
This time the woman was so annoyed and insulted that she fumed past the creature into the store, where she threatened to sue the owner and have the bird killed.
The store manager said he was horrified at its bad behaviour, and promised the parrot wouldn't say those words again.
When the lady walked past the store after work the next time, the parrot shouted to her, "Hey, lady!"
She paused. "Yes?"
The bird said, "You know!"
We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)
