Lil Johnny

Johnny received a parrot for his birthday. The parrot was fully grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an obscenity. Those that weren’t expletives, were to say the least, rude.

Johnny tried hard to change the bird’s attitude and was constantly saying polite words, playing soft music, anything he could think of. Nothing worked.

He yelled at the bird and the bird yelled back. He shocked the bird and the bird just got more angry and more rude. Finally, in a moment of desperation, Johnny put the bird in the freezer, just for a few moments.

He heard the bird squawk and kick and scream-then suddenly, there was quiet.

Johnny was frightened that he might have hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door.

The parrot calmly stepped out and said “I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I’ll endeavor at once to correct my behavior. I really am truly sorry and beg your forgiveness.”

Johnny was astonished at the bird’s change in attitude and was about to ask what had made such a dramatic change when the parrot continued, “May I ask what did the chicken do?”


9th Day Of Lunar New Year – Jade Emperor’s Birthday

Today is auspicious as I learnt it was Jade Emperor’s birthday.

Usually for the Hokkiens, this is a very special day. A pair of sugar cane “trees” are usually burnt as offerings but this year with the floods in Malaysia, I was told sugar cane “trees” may not be as readily available.

Why sugar cane? History was written that the Chinese people of China sought refuge in a sugar cane plantation from killers and prayed to Jade Emperor for protection. Their prayers were answered and they stayed safe. Hence the tradition followed.

Beautifully done…a bunny is drawn using numerals 2 & 3 with a dot for the eye. I tried to rellicate this and failed. Haha…an artist, I am not….aaah but a joker with laughs is who I can be!
Be careful with how you make a wish with Genies!
