A woman wanted a pet to keep her company at home while her husband was off at work and the children were in school. After some research, she decided a parrot would fit her needs nicely. It wouldn’t be as much work as a dog or a cat, and it would be very interesting to hear it speak, but unfortunately they were quite expensive.
One day on a shopping trip she spotted a large, beautifully colored parrot and asked the owner of the store for the price of the bird. The owner said he let it go for $50. Delighted that such a rare and beautiful bird wasn’t more expensive, she agreed to buy it.
Before accepting her money, the owner said, “I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a brothel. Sometimes it says some pretty…..well, embarrassing stuff.” The woman was so attracted to the bird and the excellent price that she decided to buy it anyway.
When she got home she placed the bird’s cage in her living room and waited patiently for it to say something. The bird studied his new surroundings, and his new owner, and finally said, “New house, new madam.” The woman was a little taken at the implication of what she had just heard, but after a few minutes decided that it wasn’t really all that bad.
When her two teenage daughters came in from school, the bird looked them over and said, “New house, new madam, new girls!” After their initial surprise was over, the girls joined their mother in laughter.
Shortly after 5:00 p.m. the woman’s husband came home from work. The bird looked at him, the mother, and the girls and said, “New house, new madam, new girls — Hi Sam!”
