Parrot’s Punchline

A burglar breaks into a house one night. He shines his torch around, looking for valuables, and picking up a laptop to place in his sack, a strange voice echoes from the dark saying: “Jesus is watching you.”

He nearly jumps out of his skin, but when he hears nothing more after a bit, he shakes his head, promises himself a vacation after the next big heist, then begins searching for more valuables. Just as he pulls the stereo out so he can disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he hears: “Jesus is watching you.”

Freaked out, he shines his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his torch light comes to rest on a parrot.

“Did you say that?” He demands.

“Yep,” the parrot squawks: “I’m just trying to warn you.”

The burglar relaxes “Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?”

“Moses,” says the bird. “Moses?” the burglar laughs. “What kind of people would name a bird Moses?”

The bird replies: “The kind of people that would name a Rottweiler Jesus.”
