As an early Christmas present, a man gets a talking parrot from his friend. He takes the parrot home and puts it in his living room.
But every time the man goes near the living room, he hears the parrot shouting insults at him. In desperation, he puts the parrot in the freezer.
After a few minutes, the insults stop. Thinking he might have killed the parrot, he takes it out of the freezer. The parrot is still alive, but it is shivering.
It stammers, "I'm s-sorry for b-b-being s-so rude. P-p-please forgive m-me."
So the man forgives him. After a while the parrot asks, "What exactly did the turkey do?"
