A lady was visibly distraught one morning and explained to her neighbour that her parrot had escaped from his cage and flown out an open window. Of all the dangers the tame bird would face outdoors alone, she seemed most concerned about what would happen if the bird started talking.
Neighbour: “Why are you so worried? What would your parrot say?”
Lady: “Well, he mostly says, ‘Here, kitty, kitty.’ ”
