A woman walks by a house with a bird cage on the porch. Inside is a parrot.
As she passes it, she hears the parrot squawk “You’re fat, and you’re ugly!” The woman gasps, but ignores the bird. It’s only a bird after all. But then the parrot repeats itself, “You’re fat, and you’re ugly!”
Now the woman gets angry, huffs loudly, and moves on.
The next day, she walks by the same house again, and the parrot squawks, “YOU’RE FAT, AND YOU’RE UGLY! YOU’RE FAT, AND YOU’RE UGLY!”
The woman gets absolutely furious and pounds on the front door.
The owner of the house answers, and the woman yells at him, “I have never in all my years seen such a misbehaved pet. What a nuisance to the neighborhood. I don’t appreciate the way you let him speak so vulgarly! If you don’t do something about him, I will!”
The man apologizes and agrees to talk to the bird. “It won’t happen again,” he says. “I promise.”
So the next day, the woman walks by the house once more. She sees the parrot sitting in his cage just eyeing her. The parrot is calm, quiet, and staring with a smirk on his face.
The woman crosses her arms, raises her eyebrows, and says, “Well?”
Finally the parrot leans forward and utters, “You know.”
