A man had a parrot that could talk. Unfortunately, it swore a lot, as if a sailor and a pirate had created a drunken love-child. In an effort to get the parrot to be quiet, he put it in a cupboard. The parrot continued swearing and after a while the man decided to put the bird in the freezer. After that, the parrot started swearing even more. After a few minutes, it suddenly became quiet.
The man opened up the freezer and the wide-eyed parrot then said, “I’m sorry, sir, that kind of outburst will never happen again.” As the man took the bird out of the freezer he wondered what the difference was between the cupboard and the freezer. Just then, the parrot said, “So, uh, what did the chicken do?”
