A man wanted to give his parents something very special for their 50th anniversary. He finally settled on a Mynah bird, so he sought out the smartest Mynah in the world. He found one that could speak four languages and had a vocabulary of 1,000 words. The cost was high but he figured it was worth it for such a special occasion.
So he delivered the bird to his parents, who marveled at its striking beauty.
A few days later the man called to see how the bird was doing.
“It was real good,” said the father. And the mother added, “we had enough left over for supper, too.”
“You mean you ate that bird? Didn’t you know he spoke four languages?”
“Well,” said the father. “Why didn’t he say something?”
