Blast from the Past

[Posted this on Ultrablog (RIP) July 3, 2005. Enjoy!]

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?”

  1. Funny! But I guessed the punchline as soon as I saw the word “brothel”!


  2. Have to remember when I’m in a brothel to give the parrot a cracker.
