Joke about a parrot - level 1, A12

A man got a parrot. This parrot spoke, but the parrot said only bad words. In the beginning it was funny, but after some time it wasn’t so good. One day, a boss visited this man. The parrot spoke to his boss. He said very bad words to his boss. It was horrible.

When the boss went home, the man told the parrot, "Don’t say bad words! I don’t like it!" But the bird answered him with more bad words. He took the bird into his hands and told him, "Don't say bad words. I will kill you!" The bird answered with many bad words.

Now, the man took the parrot and put him into the fridge, but nothing changed. From inside the fridge, the parrot said bad words. He opened the door and took him out, and again the bird spoke in bad words. Now, the man opened the door of the freezer, he put the parrot into it, and closed the door.

Now, there was quiet there. After two minutes, the man opened the door and took the very cold parrot out. The parrot sat on his shoulder and spoke into his ear:

"I will be a good parrot. Believe me. I saw some chickens in the freezer. What did they do?"
