Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

A WEDNESDAY FUNNY

The Parrot That Wouldn't Shut Up

Marty, an RVer from Portland, travels in his motorhome with a talkative but foul-mouthed parrot. One day in a campground near Albuquerque, New Mexico, the bird's swearing got to be too much. So Marty grabbed it by the throat and yelled "Stop it!" But only minutes later, the bird was swearing again.

The next day, the bird yelled so loudly that the couple next door in a big fifth wheel stopped by to demand its silence. Desperate, Marty locked the bird in a kitchen cabinet. But it didn't help: the bird kept right on swearing. The next day, the bird was even worse. So, as a last resort, Marty tossed it into his spacious  freezer. After five minutes, all was quiet. Worried the bird might be freezing, Marty took it out. "I'm sorry," confessed the suddenly polite bird. "I promise to never swear again."

Marty was astonished. He couldn't understand the change in attitude.

"By the way," asked the parrot, "what did the chicken do?"

 

I think this is in Sandwich, IL?
