MOre Parrot Jokes:

There was once a magician on a cruise ship who performed mainly sleight of hand tricks. He had a regular spot on the ship's cabaret evening entertainment. He was actually quite a good magician, but his routines were regularly ruined by the onboard parrot who would fly around squawking out and giving away his secrets like:


The magician was getting pretty sick of this and threatened to kill the parrot if it ruined his act one more time. That evening right at the climax of his act, just as he was about to disappear in a puff of smoke, the ship hit an iceberg and sank in seconds.

Amazingly, the magician and the parrot were the only two survivors. The magician was lying on a piece of driftwood in a daze. As he opened his eyes he could see the parrot staring at him out of its beady little eye.

The parrot sat there for hours just staring at him and eventually said, "OK, I give up, what did you do with the ship?"

This lady approaches a priest and tells him,
"Father, I have a problem. I have these two talking female parrots, but they only know how to say one thing."
"What do they say?" inquired the priest.
"They only know how to say, 'Hi, we're prostitutes. Do you want to have some fun?' "
"That's terrible!" the priest exclaimed, "but I have a solution to your problem. Bring your two talking female parrots over to my house and I will put them with my two male talking parrots who I taught to pray and read the bible. My parrots will teach your parrots to stop saying that terrible phrase and your female parrots will learn to praise and worship."
"Thank you!" responded the woman.
So the next day, the lady brings her female parrots to the priests house. The priest two male parrots are holding rosary beads and praying in their cage. The lady puts her female parrots in with the male parrots and the female parrots say,
"Hi, we are prostitutes. Do you want to have some fun?"
One male parrot looks over at the other male parrot and exclaims,
"Put the bibles away. Our prayers have been answered!"


This one ain't that funny to me but i ran out of jokes! LOL!

Hi Stephanie,

What a beautiful pair of birds! The colors and details are wonderful and the setting is amazing. Beautiful photo.


Hey Steph, you are starting a new note-writing trend on TN, which is so amusing I'm afraid very soon all of us would be writing jokes on birds and bees instead of those heavily Latinized ones :-)!
Anyway, the jokes are hilarious, both of them. Thanks for making me laugh and thanks also for a lovely picture of this pair of parrots.
The picture is a beauty from every point of view.

Very sharp details and good light.

Beautifully shot. Clarity is excellent.
I wish my shots were as good!

Plus those are the cleanest parrot jokes I've heard! I take it you know the one about the parrot with no legs!?*


Hi Stephanie,
Very nice composition and sharp image.


Hi Stephanie,

This is a very nice capture of these two lories, both subject are focused with sharp precision and the colors are beautiful. I'm curious, is greenpink orange your favorite colors? :)

Hi Stephanie,
My prayers have been answered.
A portrait of two parrot prostitutes....:-)

You have an AMAZING collection of parrots. Very well composed, all of them. They are ALL well presented too.
I had marked your very red one as a "Favorite".
The details on these mutations are sharp. Looks like they were "posing" just for you.
Thanks for sharing.
Greetings from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
