A man had a very clever parrot whose memory was second to

none. One day, the man came up with a foolproof way of

making lots of money. He got the parrot to learn the

National Anthem and then took it down the pub where he

told the customers, “I bet £10 that my parrot can sing the

whole of the National Anthem.”

Some interest was shown and the money was placed on the

bar. Sadly though, the parrot never uttered a note and the

man had to pay out a lot of money. When he got home, he

was beside himself with rage.

“You bloody stupid, half-witted bird. You’ve lost me a lot of

money today.”

“Now wait up a minute,” said the clever old bird. “Just

imagine the interest you’ll get tomorrow when we go back.”
