Post 1614.

Whenever someone visited Joan’s home, her mynah bird yelled  'Hello gorgeous - fancy a good time?' She mentioned the problem to her priest who also had a mynah bird, only his just said prayers. A meeting was suggested; maybe his bird would have a positive influence over hers.

Joan took her bird to the priest's house where the holy mynah was deep in prayer. True to form hers shrieked  'Hello gorgeous - fancy a good time?' The priest’s mynah chuckled so he walked over to the cage and said 'What’s so amusing?' His mynah looked to the heavens and said 'My prayers have just been answered'!



Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Douglas M Macilroy for the picture.
