From some rando email…
A woman goes into a pet shop looking for a parrot. The assistant shows her a beautiful African Grey parrot. “What about this one, Madam? A beautiful bird and it’s an absolute steal at only $20.”
“Why is it that cheap?” the woman asks.
“Well,” replies the assistant, “it used to live in a brothel and as a result its language is a touch fruity.”
“Oh, I don’t mind that,” said the woman, making her mind up. “I’m broad minded and it’ll be a laugh having a profane parrot.”
So saying, she buys the parrot and takes him home. Once safely in his new home, the parrot looks around and squawks at the woman. “Bugger me, a new brothel and a new madam.”
“I’m not a madam and this isn’t a brothel,” scolds the woman, trying not to laugh.
A little later the woman’s two teenage daughters arrive home.
“Un-bloody-believable. A new brothel, a new madam, and now two new prostitutes,” says the parrot when he sees the daughters.
“Mum, tell your parrot to shut-up, we’re not prostitutes,” complain the girls, but they all see the funny side and have a laugh at their new pet.
A short while later, the woman’s husband Dave comes home.
“Un-bloody-believeable, a new brothel, a new madam, new prostitutes, but the same old clients… How ya doin’, Dave?”
