A man went into the pet shop to purchase something for his mother's birthday. His mother was alone and he thought it would be a good idea if she had a nice companion with her. He couldn't decide what kind of a pet to get so the shop owner showed him a parrot. He said, "This parrot can speak in 5 different languages." The man said, "Wow, that'll give her someone to talk to, it should be a nice pet. I'll take it."
Four brothers were successful doctors and lawyers. They decided to give their elderly mother a gift.
One gave her a big house.
Another gave her a big $100,000.00 theater for her new house.
Another gave her an expensive car.
The fourth son said, "Listen, you know, too, she can't see very well. I met this priest who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took 20 priests 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000. a year for 20 years to the church." Let me tell you, it was worth it! All Mama has to do is name a chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it." The other brothers were so impressed.
Mama sent Thank You notes:
Milton: The house you had built for me is huge. I live only in one room but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway. Mama
Manny: The expensive theater can hold 50 people but all my friends are dead. I've lost my hearing and I'm almost blind. Thanks anyway. Mama
Marvin: I am too old to travel and I have my groceries delivered. The driver you hired is a Democrat. Thanks anyway. Mama
DEAREST MELVIN: You were the only son to give a little thought to your gift. That colorful little chicken was delicious! Thank You. MAMA
