Joke about rich brothers - level 2

Three rich brothers wanted to do something special for their old mother on her birthday. The first brother bought her a big house. The second brother gave her a big car, with a driver. The third brother remembered that his mother loved to read the Bible, but she couldn't see well, so he gave her a special parrot which could read from the Bible.

Soon, the brothers received letters from their mother. The first letter said, "The house which you bought me is very big. I only live in a small part of it, but I have to clean the whole house."

The second son got a letter which said, "I don’t leave the house very often, so I don’t use the car very often. And when I use it, the driver is not nice to me."

The third son got a letter that said, "My sweet boy, you know what your mother loves. The chicken was very tasty."
