A pet shop owner was extoling the virtues of a parrot he was selling to a woman. "I promise you that this bird is so well behaved, you can take it anywhere, "he assured her. Delighted, she took the parrot to church.
Things were great until, halfway throught the sermon, the bird blurted, "It's bloody cold in here!"
Embarrassed, the woman went back to the pet shop.
"This 'good bird' swore in church today," she told the owner.
"I'm sorry. It sometimes does that in new places," he said.
"Next time, grab its feet and swing it over your head a few times. That should stop it."
Next Sunday, the woman and her parrot were in church when the bird yelled, "It's bloody cold in here."
Quickly, the woman grabbed the parrot and swung it above her head.
Then she put the bird back on her shoulder.
"Jeez," the parrot said.
"It's bloody windy too."
