Animals : Parrot Auction
One day a man went to an auction to bid on a parrot. He kept getting
outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid
way more than he intended, he won the bid - the parrot was his at last!
As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, "I sure
hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for
it, only to find out that he can't talk!"
"Don't worry." said the Auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think
kept bidding against you?"
