A Jewish Parrot

Three Jewish sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. Getting back
together, they discussed the gifts that they were able to give to their elderly

The first said, "I built a big house for our mother."

The second said, "I sent her a Mercedes with a driver."

The third said, "I've got you both beat. You know how Mom enjoys reading the
Torah and you know she can't see very well? I sent her a large brown parrot that
can recite the entire Torah. It took twenty rabbis 12 years to teach him. I had
to pledge to contribute $1,000,000 a year for twenty years but it was worth it.
Mom just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it."

Soon thereafter, Mom sent out her letters of thanks. She wrote to the first
son, "Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I
have to clean the whole house."

She wrote to the second son, "Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home all
the time, so I never use the Mercedes and the driver is SO rude."

She wrote to the third son, "Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the
good sense to know what your mother likes. The chicken was delicious."
