    A man walks into a pet store and spies a beautiful male parrot in the corner. He asks the owner how much for the parrot and the owner replies, "Two-thousand dollars."

    Appalled by the price, man started to walk out until the owner said, "This is a very special parrot."

    Intrigued, the man turned around and the owner showed him the parrot's special abilities.

    "We you hold a match under his right foot," the owner said, "look at what happens." The owner lit a match and put it underneath the parrot right foot and the parrot came to life and started to sing, "Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…"

    "That is amazing!" the man said. "But what if you put a match underneath his left foot? Does he do anything?"

    "Oh, yes," the owner said, "Watch." The owner placed a match underneath the parrot's left foot and the parrot came to life and sang "On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me…"

    "Amazing! I must have him," the man said. He paid the owner and took the parrot home to show his wife.

    "Honey," the man said, "You have to see what this parrot can do!" The man showed his wife what would happen if he placed a flame under each of the parrot's feet and his wife was amazed, too.

    Then curiosity got the better of her and she said, "What would happen if you put the flame between his legs?" The man, curious also, did this very thing.

    The parrot came alive and started to sing, "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire…"
