- The Motor City
A man boards an airliner, takes his seat, and is surprised to find a large purple parrot in the seat next to him. The aircraft takes off and a pretty flight attendant walks down the aisle past the man and his seatmate. "Hey ****," said the parrot, "bring me a whiskey and soda, and make it snappy!" The flight attendant looks annoyed, but walks on. A minute later, she walks back up the aisle and the parrot pipes up again: "Doggonit, you lazy ****, where's my whiskey? Hurry it up!" Visibly flustered, the flight attendant hurries up the aisle and return quickly with the parrot's drink. Impressed with the parrot's technique, the man decides to get some quick service for himself. "Hey, ****," says the man, "Get me a dry martini. And don't drag your sorry feet - I want it right now!" The flight attendant turns red with anger and runs to the front of the plane. In a moment she returns with the First Officer and two burly male flight attendants. The crewmen seize the passenger and the parrot, jerk open the emergency door, and hurl them both out of the airplane at 20,000 feet. As the two hurtle out the door, the parrot says to the man, "Ya know, for someone who can't fly, you got a lotta nerve."
