What a Little Birdie Told Me

Talking Bird

I was walking along minding my own business when all of a sudden this funny looking bird landed in front of me and started talking about the weather.  I realized the bird was trying to start up a conversation with me. I was a little shocked to see a talking bird and I said to him “Um, you’re a bird.  When did you learn to talk?”

He responded, “What?  All birds talk.  Haven’t you ever seen a parrot?  Anyway you’re a giant walking pile of fur and nobody really believes you exist.  What business do you have being surprised to see a talking bird?”

Now, I am not much for small talk so I just came out and said, “Well you’ve never talked to me before and generally when somebody I have never spoken with comes up and starts talking to me they are trying to sell me something I don’t need or want.  So what are you selling?”

“Oh, my friend that’s where you got me all wrong.  I am not selling anything.  I am granting a limited number of people the opportunity of a lifetime….”  And that’s when I granted him the opportunity to fly further than any bird has ever flown before.
