Parrot Lost For Words
The Englishman and The Scotsman were abroad so they phoned Interpol and sent
a gorgeous parrot to their friend The Irishman. When they arrived home however
The Irishman opened The oven and produced The parrot well and truly roasted saying,
'Let's have some lovely roast duck for dinner.'
That isn't a duck you fool,' they said to him. 'It's a parrot and it could speak
seven different languages.'
'In that case,' said The Irishman, "why didn't it say something before I put it
in The oven?'
