Old Jokes #19

by

A man spots a parrot on the street and stops and puts it in his car. He then sees a patrolman and asks, "Officer, I found this parrot on the street. What should I do with him?"

"Take him to the zoo," the officer replied.

So the man did.

The next day the officer spots the man at a Stop sign with the parrot on the seat next to him.

"I thought you were going to take him to the zoo."

"I did," the man replied. "And we had so much fun that today I'm taking him to the beach!"

    The original joke wasn't a parrot, but parrot jokes are always a little funnier to me. It was supposed to be two jokes but that one took more room so here's the shorter one...

    A man walks into a movie theater and sits down in the first row. He notices a parrot on the seat next to him. He asks the parrot, "What are you doing here?"

    The parrot replies, "Well, I liked the book!"

    Are you sure that's not a "Dad" joke? 😁

    Love it! ... but definitely a ‘Dad’ joke as Jeff suggests! It will be retold over here by this dad!

    Thanks, Verity. I guess, not being a dad myself, I don't know what constitutes a "dad" joke.

    A ‘dad’ joke is really corny! He probably tells it year in, year out and it gets a groan from the kids. Always!
    Whenever the family is here at Christmas and we have Christmas crackers (the things with jokes and mottos in and a crappy, or if you’re really really lucky, or rich, a decent gift), my joke always seems to be in the form of a question ‘When is a door not a door?’ Answer, ‘When it’s ajar!’

    I guess I am a dad then because most of my humor is like that!

    I know a Parrot whom I occasionally 'Parrot Sit .' . Wouldn't risk taking him to the zoo but loved this. ;-)
