I've Got A Parrot
"Glad to see you getting in on time these mornings. Mr. Latterly. " Said the store manager.
"Yes, sir, I've got a parrot now."
"A parrot ? What for ? I advised you to get an alarm clock!"
"I did, sir, but after a few mornings I got used to it, and it failed to wake me. So I got a parrot and now when I retire I hang the alarm clock over his cage. It wakes the parrot, and what the bird says would arouse anybody."
