A woman parishioner goes to see her priest after the service one Sunday and says, “Father, I have a problem that I hope you can help me with”.
The priest beckons to her to continue.
The woman says, “I have two female parrots, but they only know how to say one thing”.
“What do they say?”, the priest inquired.
The woman replies, “They say, ‘Hi, we’re hookers! Do you want to have some fun?'”
“That’s obscene!” the priest exclaimed.
He then thought for a moment.
“You know”, he said to her, “I may have a solution to your problem. I have two male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the Bible. Bring your two parrots over to my house tomorrow and we’ll put them in the cage with Frank and Jacob. My parrots can teach your parrots to pray and worship, and your parrots are sure to stop saying that phrase in no time”.
“Thank you, oh thank you”, the woman responded, “this may very well be the solution”.
The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest’s house.
As he ushered her in, she saw that his two male parrots were inside their cage, each of them holding rosary beads and praying.
Highly impressed by this, she walked over and placed her parrots in the cage with them.
After a few minutes, the female parrots cried out in unison: “Hi, we’re hookers! Do you want to have some fun?”
There was stunned silence in the room.
Shocked, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and exclaimed, “Put the rosary beads away, Frank. Our prayers have been answered!”
