Five Dollar Parrot
A potential customer, named Doug, was milling about in a pet shop when he came upon a parrot perched in a cage. A sign attached to the outer part of the cage read: "PARROT FOR SALE -- $5."
"Hello, my name is Conacher," said the parrot, introducing himself. He then continued, "I once resided at Buckingham Palace. I served as royal counsel to Her Majesty there. One day, the Queen gave me away as a gift to Alicia Silverstone, the American actress. I taught Alicia how to get her dogs to go vegan by sharing some avocado-based recipes, that I know of, with her. Alicia Silverstone has a very busy schedule though. She doesn't really have the time to properly take care of me. Anyway, long story short, that's basically how come I ended up here."
Doug was very impressed by the story that the parrot had just told him, so much so, that he immediately raced up to the front of the store and commented to the cashier, "That's SOME bird you've got back there!" He then asked, "How come this parrot is for sale for only five bucks?"
"Aw," replied the cashier, "the bird's a liar."
