“Oh hello – come in and I’ll show you where the problem is. Oh – don’t you mind Spike my dog – he won’t hurt you.”
The plumber looked at the powerful, mean looking bulldog that was giving him the eye.
“Mind you don’t speak to the parrot whatever you do….” and she left it at that.
While the plumber was working under the sink, the bulldog came over and sat quietly beside him. He thought no more about it but was barely able to concentrate from the abuse and loud swearing that was coming from the parrot.
Finally the plumber could stand it no longer and shouted back at the parrot “Will you shut up you obnoxious, bl****, f****** mangy bird!”
The parrot took one look back at the plumber. “GET HIM SPIKE!”
