Whimsical Wednesday

A burgler broke into a house one night. He shone his flashlight around, looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying:

"Jesus is watching you."

He nearly jumped out of his skin! Hands shaking he clicked his flashlight off and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head and promised himself a vacation after the next big scor. Then he clicked the light back on and began searching for more valuables.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard:

"Jesus is watching you."

Totally rattled, he shone his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.

"Did you say that?" he hissed at the parrot.

"Yes," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you."

The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who do you think you are anyway?"

"Moses," replied the bird.

"Moses," the burglar laughed. "What kind of stupid people would name a parrot Moses?"

The bird promptly answered. "The same kind of people that would name a Rottweiler Jesus!"

This is one I'd heard before...but it bears repeating. Too funny. :-)

But that's perfect. Oh thanks for the laugh.
Have a lovely day.
