Jain Vegans


 

2010-09

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift.  The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. 

 

Every word out of the bird's' mouth was rude, obnoxious, and laced with profanity.  John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music, and doing whatever  else he could think of to 'clean up' the bird's vocabulary. 

Finally, John was fed up, and he yelled at the parrot.  The  parrot yelled back.  John shook the parrot, but the parrot became angrier and even more rude.  In desperation, John threw up his hand, grabbed the bird, and locked him in the freezer.  For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.

But suddenly, there was total quiet.  Not a peep was heard for over a minute. 
  
Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer.  The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said: 

"I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions.  I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions, and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior." 

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.  

As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up, very softly, 

"May I ask what the turkey did?"
