A quiet, polite man inherits a foul-mouthed parrot from his brother the sailor.

One day, the constant loud and annoying obscenities get to be too much for him, so the man locks the parrot away in a kitchen cabinet.  When the man finally lets him out, the bird cuts loose with a fresh stream of vulgarities.  In desperation, the man puts the bird into the freezer.

After a few seconds of clawing and thrashing and yelling, it suddenly gets VERY quiet.

Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, the man opens the freezer door.  The bird calmly climbs onto the man's outstretched arm and says, "I'm so very, very sorry.  I promise I'll never curse again."

The man is astonished.

Then the parrot says, "Oh, by the way, what did the chicken do?"
