Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

The Parrots

One day a man goes to a pet shop to buy a parrot. The assistant takes the man to the parrot section and asks the man to choose one. The man asks, “How much is the yellow one?”

The assistant says, “$2000.” The man is shocked and asks the assistant why it’s so expensive.

The assistant explains, “This parrot is a very special one. He knows typewriting and can type really fast.”

“What about the green one?” the man asks.

The assistant says, “He costs $5000 because he knows typewriting and can answer incoming telephone calls and takes notes.”

“What about the red one?” the man asks.

The assistant says, “That one’s $10,000.”

The man says, “What does HE do?”

The assistant says, “I don’t know, but the other two call him boss.”

  2. I had a bird once... That was more than enough. A cockatiel flew right into my friend's carport and landed right next to me. We couldn't find who it belonged to so I took it home. Thankfully, I found him a good home. Birds are no fun. Even if they could type.

    Have a perfect day! I'm sure gonna try! big hugs xoxo

  4. Good story. All the cats here would love to have a bird in the house but not a $10,000 one. It would be there special supper. Take care Sandee and you and Zane have a wonderful day.

  6. The boss takes all credits to himself and passes on all debits to his subordinates. The subordinates can't do that. That is why he is paid so much. Just saying!

  16. The shop owner is worried that the other two won't do anything when the Boss is gone. He's protecting his investment. This isn't a joke. It's a lesson in economics and capitalism.

  19. I could tell boss jobs, Sandee. Many, many of mine sure didn't get their pay from what they could do. There is a thing called "level of incompetence," the red one probably had been promoted to that level. =))

  21. Can I have the green one for free? :) or maybe I'll have the boss.. but truth is..I don't want a bird or a ny pet in our house now, maybe someday when we already have our own house and a backyard.

    Have a great day Sandee!!!
