A parrot flew into a bar-room and landed on the bar.

“I like Sherry” the parrot said several times. When the bartender didn't do anything the bird said, “Where's my Sherry, where's my Sherry?” But this time the bird started screeching & making a heck of a racket.

Well, the bartender had a hangover, so his poor head wasn't prepared for the sort of sounds that were coming out of that bird.

“OK, OK,” said the bartender, as he pored the bird a shoot glass full of Sherry.

The bird waddled over to the glass, took a big drink, & promptly fell over.

The bartender was flabbergasted! “Hay Bird, wake up!” The bartender kept saying while pocking at the bird & pulling on it's tail. But the bird didn't move. “Oh great,” thought the bartender, “now I have a dead bird on my hands. I'd better get rid of this thing before someone sees it.”

So the bartender got a large sack, put the parrot in it, and dumped it in the trash. And as luck would have it the trash truck arrived minutes later.

A few customers came in and the bartender soon forgot all about the bird & it's demise.

About 1:00 p.m.. a frantic woman came into the bar & said she was looking for her lost parrot, which had gotten out of it's cage. She was asking all the patrons if they had seen it. None had.

Then she asked the bartender if she could put up a reward poster on the door.
The bartender told her she could, and knowing the bird was gone, took it down as soon as she left.

The poster said:
$500 REWARD for my rare African “Sleeping” Parrot.
If found, call Sherry at number stated above.
