Bob spied a big green parrot in a pet shop window under a big sign that said “A Great Talker!”
Bob walked in the shop and asked the merchant “How much for the talking bird?
“Well,” replied the merchant, “Since he’s such a good talker, I can’t let him go for less than $100.”
“Hmm,” bob replies, that’s a but much.” Then Bob spied a miniature turkey sitting quietly in a corner cage. “How much is that little turkey?” He asked.
“That turkey sells for $500,” the shop keeper responded.
“$500!” Bob exclaims. “The parrot can talk but the turkey can’t, so why the huge price discrepancy?”
“It’s true the parrot can talk,” replies the merchant, but this a philosopher turkey.
He’s a great thinker!
