  1. MAGICIAN AND THE PARROT

    There was once a magician on a cruise ship who performed mainly sleight of hand tricks. He had a regular spot on the ship’s cabaret evening entertainment. He was actually quite a good magician, but his routines were regularly ruined by the onboard parrot who would fly around squawking out and giving away his secrets like:

    “IT’S UP HIS SLEEVE, IT’S UP HIS SLEEVE!”or

    “IT’S IN HIS POCKET, IT’S IN HIS POCKET!”or

    “IT’S IN HIS MOUTH, IT’S IN HIS MOUTH!”

    The magician was getting pretty sick of this and threatened to kill the parrot if it ruined his act one more time. That evening right at the climax of his act, just as he was about to disappear in a puff of smoke, the ship hit an iceberg and sank in seconds.

    Amazingly, the magician and the parrot were the only two survivors. The magician was lying on a piece of driftwood in a daze. As he opened his eyes he could see the parrot staring at him out of its beady little eye.

    The parrot sat there for hours just staring at him and eventually said, “OK, I give up, what did you do with the ship?”
