<< forwards in a cage>>
  So there's this fella with a parrot. And this parrot swears like a 
sailor. I mean he's a pistol. He can swear for five minutes straight 
without repeating himself. Trouble is, the guy who owns him is a quiet, 
conservative type, and this bird's foul mouth is driving him crazy.

  One day, it gets to be too much, so the guy grabs the bird by the 
throat, shakes him really hard, and yells, "QUIT IT!" But this just 
makes the bird mad and he swears more than ever. Then  the guy gets mad 
and says, "OK for you." and locks the bird in a kitchen cabinet. This 
really aggravates the bird and he claws and scratches, and when the guy 
finally lets him out, the bird cuts loose with a stream of invective 
that would make a veteran sailor blush.

  By this point, the guy is so mad that he throws the bird into the 
freezer. For the first few seconds there is a terrible din. The bird 
kicks and claws and thrashes. Then it suddenly gets _very_ quiet. At 
first the guy just waits, but then he starts to think that the bird may 
be hurt. After a couple of minutes of silence, he's so worried that he 
opens up the freezer door.

  The bird calmly climbs onto the man's out-stretched arm and 
says,"Awfully sorry about the trouble I gave you. I'll do my best to 
improve my vocabulary from now on." The man is astounded. He can't 
understand the transformation that has come over the parrot. Then the 
parrot says, "By the way, what did the chicken do?"
