   A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had 
a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

  Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced 
with profanity. John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by 
consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything 
else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's

  Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back.

  John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder. In 
desperation, John threw up his hands, grabbed the bird and put him in 
the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and 

  Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a 
minute. Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the 
door to the freezer.

  The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said 
, "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and 
actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions 
and I fully intend to do everything I can to
  correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

  John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he was 
about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his 
behavior, when the bird
  continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"
