A man went into a pet store and saw a beautiful, exotic parrot in a cage. The bird had a red string tied to its left leg and a blue string tied to its right leg. “What are those strings for?” the man asked the store’s owner.
“This is a highly trained animal,” the owner explained. “If you pull the red string, he speaks Chinese, and if you pull the blue string, he speaks Spanish.”
“What happens if you pull both strings at the same time?” the man asked.
“I fall off my perch, you idiot!” squawked the parrot.
What popular performer’s birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta?

Lady Gaga.

(Yeah - I got this one!)

Problem: There are two shows you want to watch that are on at the same time. Solution: Picture-in-picture, a feature on 1980s TV sets that put two channels on the screen, one in a small window in the corner. The option had its drawbacks (you couldn’t listen to both shows at the same time) and disappeared by 2000, made obsolete by DVRs, which can record a show while you watch another one.
During the show’s five-year run, the word sex was uttered on The Brady Bunch just twice.

    I don't get the Lady Gaga one. emoticon

I wouldn't be able to pick her out of a line up - although I have heard her name on occasion. emoticon

God bless!

    If you put sports in the smaller screen, you don't need sound.. That's my kind of parrot.
