A Mother, 3 Sons, and a Religious Parrot Joke

image: parrot
Three fine sons left home, went out on their own and prospered much. After many years, getting back together, they discussed the gifts they recently purchased for their elderly mother.

The first son said, "I built a big new house for mother."

The second son said, "I sent her a new Cadillac and a year round driver."

The third son smiled and said: "If this was a contest I would be the winner. You remember how Mom loves reading the Bible? And you know shes older and can't see very well. So I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the entire Bible. It took many priests 10 years to teach him.  He's one of a kind.  Mother just has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it."

Soon thereafter, Mom sent out her thank you letters:

"Johnny," she wrote one son, "the house you built is so big...I live in only one room, but I have to clean the entire house."

"Richard," she wrote to another, "I am too old to travel. I stay home most of the time, so I rarely use the Cadillac.  And the driver can't speak English very well!"

"Dear Greg," she wrote to her third son, "you have the good sense to know what your mother loves.  The chicken was delicious."
