share this: the parking lot* with a nightly show. He was very successfull in his job and there was always a full house at all his performances. Life was sweet. The money was rolling in, he had one of the best cabins, ate the best food, mixed with the best people. All was fine until one day the captain bought a parrot.
The feature of the parrot's day was going along to see the diviner in action in the evening. During the magician's performances, the parrot would watch him very carefully during each trick, and literally after the genie had completed the trick the parrot would call out in a loud squark, "It's up his sleeve, it's up his sleeve," or, "It's down his trousers, it's down his trousers," each time ruining the magician's trick.
Well life was no longer as sweet and the enchantress started to strain to satisfy the passengers. The brain* naturally got very tired of the parrot and longed to kill it.
Then one night in the middle of the magician's performances, the ship hit an iceberg and sank. Everyone was killed except for the prophet and the parrot. The siren managed to swim to a piece of wreckage, climbed aboard and collapsed. The parrot flew towards the witch and perched on the edge of the raft and stared at the magician.
For a whole day the enchanter was unconscious, and all this time the parrot did not take his eyes off him. Eventually the wizard started to stir, and looked up not really knowing where he was or what had happened. He eventually found enough energy to sit up. He then noticed the parrot, who had not stopped focusing his eyes on him all this time.
"Alright I give up ..." chirped the parrot, "... what have you done with the ship?"
