Limp Parrot (# 184)
A woman brought a very limp parrot into the Veterinarian's office. He took his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.
After a moment or two, the Vet shook his head sadly and said;
"I'm so sorry, but Polly has passed away".
The distressed owner wailed; "Are you sure? I mean, you haven't
done any testing on him or anything. I can't believe he is dead"
The Vet rolled his eyes, shrugged, turned and left the room
returning a few moments later with a beautiful black Labrador dog.
As the bird's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and
sniffed the dead parrot from top to bottom. He then looked at
the Vet with his sad, brown eyes and shook his head. The Vet
patted the dog and took it out of the office.
He returned a few moments later with a cat!
The cat jumped up, circled the parrot three times , and also sniffed delicately at the bird. The cat sat back, shook its head, meowed and ran out of the room.
The Vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry. But like I said, your parrot is most definitely, 100% certifiably, dead."
He then turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and
produced a bill which he handed to the woman. The parrot's
owner, still in shock, took the bill.
"What's this!" she cried. "$150 just to tell me my bird is
The vet shrugged. "If you'd taken my word for it the bill would
only have been $20, but with the 'Lab Test' and the 'Cat Scan' the cost goes up."
