Wanda’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, ‘I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you a cheque. Oh, by the way don’t worry about my dog Spike. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot! I REPEAT; DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!!!’

When the repairman arrived at Wanda’s apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking dog he has ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work.

The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled,

‘Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!’

To which the parrot replied.....’Get him, Spike!'

Good one! I've been trying to think of some other joke that fits the subject, but the best I could come up with is another parrot joke:


A burglar breaks into a dark house and is plying his trade when suddenly he hears an eerie voice warn, "Jesus is watching you!" He looks around, but can't see anyone there, so he continues with his work. Almost immediately, the voice comes back, "Jesus is watching you!" He shines his flashlight all around, but still doesn't see anyone. Suddenly he thinks to shine it upwards, and there, perched near the ceiling, is a colorful parrot.

"Did you say that?" asks the burglar.

"Yes," admits the parrot.

The burglar smiles, "What's your name, parrot?"

"Moses."

The burglar begins to chuckle. "What kind of weird people would have a parrot named Moses?" he asks.

"The same kind of people who have a Doberman named Jesus.", replies the parrot.
