Donna's dishwasher quit working so she called a
repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman,
"I'll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on
the counter, and I'll mail you a check."

"Oh, by the way don't worry about my bulldog. He
won't bother you.But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances,
talk to my parrot!"

When the repairman arrived at Donna's apartment
the following day, he
discovered the biggest, meanest looking bulldog
he had ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the
carpet watching the repairman go about his work.

The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole
time with his incessant
yelling, cursing and name calling. Finally the
repairman couldn't contain
himself any longer and yelled, "Shut up, you
stupid, ugly bird!"

To which the parrot replied, "Get him, Spike!"
