As an owner of a parrot. I really liked this joked. Except in my case instead of the rude talk, my guy whistles Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer every morning. 

The Parrot
 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 vocabulary. 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. John, in desperation, threw up his
 hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.
 
  For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.
 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,
 the bird continued, “May I ask what the turkey did?”
 
Happy Thanksgiving !
