Like many presenters, if I give a martin talk, I like to start with a joke. I don't have a martin joke or even a songbird joke. The best I can do is a chicken joke and here it is. I am warning you, the only reason it is funny is that it is silly.


A man has a sister that gets herself into financial problems. Temporarily, he lets her move into his home with his wife and 4 children. Things go well at first but eventually, he finds that her problems are more than just financial.

He finds out that his sister thinks she's a chicken. This drives the man to the point that he himself goes for counseling. When he tells the counselor that his sister thinks she's a chicken, the counselor says "why don't you just tell her she is not a chicken. To which the man replies "well, frankly, we need the eggs".

Gary,
I'm going to use that! I read it to my wife, after a bit of dead silence she sent me to my room.
Here's a snail joke:
A snail goes to a car dealership because he's tired of the same old "Snails are slow" story. He asks the salesman if he has anything sporty and small. Dealer says "yep, I have just the thing, how about we put you in a z-28."
Snail loves it but asks if it can be called the S-28. Dealer says "sure, call it what you want but why the S-28"?
Snail replies, "so when I'm zipping down the highway, I want people to say wow, look at that s car go!"
Get it? Escargot?
Remember you started it.....

Very good Tom. Yes I started it but you replied. Here is another silly bird joke. I know parrots are smart but probably not this smart.


A man takes his homely wife to eat at a nice restaurant. Just inside the front door is a parrot inside a cage.

As the man and his wife walk by, the parrot tells the man "your wife is the ugliest woman I have ever seen".

The man is terribly upset. He goes and finds the manager, brings him back to the parrot and tells him what the parrot just said. The manager violently shakes the parrot cage while yelling " don't you ever say that again and insult one of our customers".

The manager then escorts the couple to their best table and comps their meal.

After dinner, the couple walks out past the parrot and the parrot says "hey". The man turns around and says back "yeaaah what!?"

The parrot says "you know".
