The Parrot That Talked Too Much
A honeymooning couple purchased a talking parrot and took it to their room. Much to the groom's annoyance, the bird kept up a running commentary on their lovemaking. Finally, the groom threw a large towel over the cage and threatened to give the parrot to the zoo if he didn't quit.
The next morning while they were packing their bags, the groom motioned to his suitcase and said, "Darling, you get on top and I'll try."
That didn't work, so the bride assumed they needed more weight on the lid. "Sweetheart," she said, "you get on top and I'll try."
Still no success. Then the groom suggested, "Let's both get on top and try."
At that point, the parrot pulled away the towel from his cage with his beak and said, "Zoo or no zoo, this I gotta see!"
