• Kangaroo's High Jump

    A kangaroo at the Sydney zoo kept getting out of his enclosure every night.

    Knowing that mature kangaroos could hop very high, the zoo officials replaced the eight-foot fence with a ten-foot fence.

    He was out the next morning, just roaming around the zoo.

    They tore down the ten-foot fence and put up a fifteen-foot fence.

    He was out again the next morning.

    A twenty-foot fence was put up. Again he go out.

    When the fence was forty feet high, a camel in the next enclosure asked the kangaroo, "How high do you think they'll go?"

    The kangaroo said, "About a thousand feet, unless somebody thinks to lock the gate at night!"
  • The Foul-Mouthed Parrot

    A man got a parrot which could already talk. It had belonged to a sailor and had a big vocabulary. However, the man soon discovered that the parrot mostly know bad words. At first he thought it was funny, but then it became tiresome, and finally, when the man had important guests, the bird's bad words embarrassed him very much.

    As soon as the guests left, the man angrily shouted at the parrot, "That language must stop!"

    But the bird answered him with curses. He shook the bird and shouted again, "Don't use those ugly words!" Again the bird cursed him.

    Now the man was really angry. He grabbed the parrot and threw him into the refrigerator. But it had no effect. From inside the refrigerator,the parrot was still swearing. He opened the door and took him out, and again the bird spoke in dirty words and curses. This time, the man opened the door of the freezer , threw the bird into it, and closed the door.

    This time there was silence. After two minutes, the man opened the door and removed the very cold parrot.

    Slowly the shivering parrot walked up the man's arm, sat on his shoulder and spoke into his ear, sounding very frightened, "I'll be good, I promise...Those chickens in there... what did they say?"
  • Dating a Cat

    Three mice are sitting at a bar in a pretty rough neighborhood late at night trying to impress each other about how tough they are.

    The first mouse pounds a shot of scotch, slams the glass onto the bar, turns to the second mouse and says, "When I see a mousetrap, I lie on my back and set it off with my foot. When the bar comes down, I catch it in my teeth, bench press it twenty times to work up an appetite, and then make off with the cheese."

    The second mouse orders up two shots of sour mash, pounds them both, slams each glass onto the bar, turns to the first mouse, and replies, "Yeah, well when I see rat poison, I collect as much as I can, take it home, grind it up to a powder, and add it to my coffee each morning so I can get a good buzz going for the rest of the day."

    The first mouse and the second mouse then turn to the third mouse.

    The third mouse lets out a long sigh and says to the first two, "I don't have time for this. I've got a date with the cat."
  • Why don't men ever listen?

    A man bought a kitten and tried to teach it to speak. Everyday for six years he taught it the alphabet.

    For hours and hours he'd say to the cat, "Repeat after me..." and then he would say a word, or a sentence.

    He was eagerly waiting the day when the cat would repeat the words. But alas, the only thing the cat did for those six years was looking back at his teacher.

    Then after six years, to his complete amazement, the cat said, "Look out, the roof is falling down!"

    Completely flabbergasted, the man just stared at the cat.

    Seconds later, he was crushed to death by the falling roof.

    The cat shook his head and said, "For six years he tried so hard to get me to speak. Then, when I did, he wouldn't listen!"
