A duck waddles into a grocery store and asks the clerk, “Do you have any duck food?” “No, we don’t have duck food and we don’t serve ducks. This is a grocery store. Get out of here.”
The next morning the duck waddles into the same grocery store and again asks the same clerk, “Do you have any duck food?” The clerk, speaking slowly and distinctly, says, “NO! I told you yesterday that we don’t have duck food and we don’t serve ducks. Get out of my store and don’t come back!”
The next morning, sure enough, the duck enters the same grocery store and once again asks the clerk, “Do you have any duck food?” The clerk screams, “NO! WE DON’T AND IF YOU COME IN HERE ASKING FOR DUCK FOOD ONE MORE TIME I’M GOING TO NAIL YOUR LITTLE WEBBED FEET TO THE FLOOR!”
The next morning the duck enters the grocery store and asks the clerk, “Do you have any nails?” Amazed, the clerk says, “No, we’re a grocery store; we don’t carry nails. “Good,” says the duck. “Do you have any duck food?”
The following story is from Joanie Doss of Amazing Amazons fame.
Tonight was an Alaska Bird Club meeting night. I was talking with a friend of mine who is a biology teacher at one of our high schools. He has several very nice birds and has breeders as well as pets. He has gotten several of his students interested in breeding and raising birds.
Anyway, he has a Congo Grey in his biology room as well as many other assorted birds and creepy crawlies. The Grey picks up things very quickly from the students and often repeats conversations that they wished he hadn’t heard.
The other day the Grey was just being too noisy and my friend covered him so that they could continue the lesson he was teaching. Soon after the cage was covered a loud clear voice from under the cover said, “This really sucks!”
