the Magician was performing on a cruise ship in the Caribbean.
The pay was lousy, but the audience changed weekly, so he
could do the same tricks over and over.
There was just one problem: The captain's parrot saw the
shows every week and began to understand the tricks. So
in the middle of the show, the parrot would shout:
'Look, it's not the same hat!'
'Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table!'
'Hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades?'
Harry was furious but couldn't do anything since it was
the captain's parrot.
Two weeks later, the ship sank. Harry saved himself by
clinging to a piece of wood ... with the parrot perched
on the other end.
Magician and parrot stared at each other with hatred for
several days, but did not utter a single word.
After a week the parrot finally said: 'Okay, I give up.
What did you do with the boat?'
