The Parrot and the Magician
Original Message   Feb 26, 2005 6:45 pm
A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was  
different each week so the magician did the same tricks  
over and over again.  There was only one problem: the  
captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to  
understand how the magician did every trick.  

Once the parrot understood the tricks, he started shouting  
in the middle of the show.  "Look, it's not the same hat!"  
or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table!" or,  
"Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?" The magician  
was furious, but couldn't do anything. It was, after all,  
the captain's parrot.  

Then one stormy night on the Pacific, the ship unfortunately  
sank, drowning almost all who were on board. The magician  
luckily found himself on a piece of wood floating in the  
middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot.  

They stared at each other with hatred but did not utter a  
word. This went on for a day... and then 2 days... and then  
3 days.  Finally, on the 4th day, the parrot could not hold  
it back any longer and said, "OK, I give up. Where's the
damned ship?"
