The Footless Parrot
A guy is browsing in a pet shop, and sees a parrot sitting on a little perch. It doesn't have any feet or legs.
The guy says aloud, "Jeesh, I wonder what happened to this parrot?"
The parrot says, "I was born this way. I'm a defective parrot."
"Holy crap," the guy replies. "You actually understood and answered me!!"
"I got every word," says the parrot. "I happen to be a highly intelligent, and a thoroughly educated bird."
"Oh yeah?'" the guy asks. "Then answer this: how do you hang onto your perch, without any feet?"
"Well," the parrot says, "this is very embarrassing, but, since you asked, I wrap my weenie around this wooden bar, like a little hook. You can't see it, because of my feathers."
"Wow," says the guy. "You really can understand, and can speak English, can't you?"
"Actually, I speak both Spanish and English, and I can converse with reasonable competence on almost any topic - politics, religion, sports, physics, philosophy. I'm especially good at ornithology.
"You really ought to buy me, I'd be a great companion."
The guy looks at the $200.00 price tag.
"Sorry, but I just can't afford that."
"Pssssssst," says the parrot, "I'm defective, so the truth is, nobody wants me, cause I don't have any feet. You can probably get me for $20; just make the guy an offer!"
The guy offers $20, and walks out with the parrot.
