What Thanksgiving food are you? Take our quiz and find out!


A man buys a parrot, only to have it constantly insult him. He tries everything to make the parrot stop, but nothing works. Frustrated, the man puts the parrot in the freezer. After a few minutes the insults stop. The man thinks he might have killed the parrot, so he opens the freezer and takes the parrot out. The parrot is shivering. It stammers, “S-s-sorry for being r-r-rude. Please f-f-forgive me.” Then, after a moment, the parrot softly asks, “W-w-what exactly d-d-did the turkey do?”

    I love the one with the parrot asking what did the turkey do so funny HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • i dont get it. explain it plz

      • The explanation of the parrot joke is that a frozen Thanksgiving turkey was in the freezer. It was most likely wrapped in plastic and frozen solid. The Parrot was afraid that the turkey was a former pet that misbehaved and was put in the freezer as punishment. The parrot apologized because he didn’t want that to happen to him.

      • For those of you that don’t understand the Parrot Joke….the Parrot saw the plucked frozen Turkey and didn’t want to end up the same way.
