Ziggy it might be a good idea to have some fried squab before your next poker game.
Only when you invite friends over to play and you have a very intelligent parrot standing next to you.
Time to pluck that bird
Put that bird in a cage, cover it and put the cage in a different room.
Great – Ziggy feels embarrassed – they can all see that he’s flushed.
Did Ziggy train the parrot to say that when he actually has a nothing hand?
A man went to a pet shop looking to buy a parrot. The shop had several parrots but one was priced much lower than the others. When the man asked why one was so much cheaper than the others, the pet shop owner assured the man that he did not want the cheaper one because it had a very foul mouth.
“I’ve tried everything, but I can’t get him to stop cussing”, he explained.
Eager to save some money, the man bought the parrot, sure he could teach the bird not to cuss. He too tried everything to stop the parrot’s foul mouth.
Finally, in frustration, he put the bird in the freezer to cool off. After a few minutes, he opened the freezer to find the parrot with a totally changed attitude.
“Please, I’ll NEVER cuss again! Please let me out! By the way, what did the chicken do?”
Poker face, Ziggy!
maybe you should squawk louder… the people outside probable didn’t hear you.
Ziggy should put the bird in a room with cats.
nicely played (pun intended)
What a rat fink! Or is that rat finch?
Ziggy has friends/acquaintances after all.
The dog complained that he couldn’t play poker: Every time he got a good hand, his tail would wag.
Reminds me of an old Dennid the Menace from the 60s: “How come Mrs. Jones’ cards all look like little Valentines?”
Ziggy looks a little flushed.
