From another forum.....


Wanda's dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, "I'll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I'll mail you a check."

"Oh, by the way don't worry about my bulldog Spike. He won't bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!" "I REPEAT, DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!!!"

When the repairman arrived at Wanda's apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking bulldog he had ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work.

The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling. Finally the repairman couldn't contain himself any longer and yelled,

"Shut up, you stupid, ugly bird!"

To which the parrot replied, "Get him, Spike!"

A French Electrician [ no, not Marc!], goes to the house of a Senior Citizen to fix a faulty switch. But she has forgotten the appointment and gone to lunch with some friends at the local café.

Electrician puts down his heavy toolbox and rings the bell.

Parrot,[from hallway] "Who is it?"

"It's the Electrician, cherie, come to fix your switch."

"Who is it?"

"It's the Electrician, come to fix your switch."

"Who is it?"

"It's the electrician, come to fix your switch."

"Who is it?"

"It's.......etc., etc...........

2 hours later the sweet old lady returns from her lunch, to find an unconscious and purple-faced Electrician slumped in the doorway, clutching his chest.

"Allo! Allo!", she says, "Who can this be, I wonder?"
