An Old Woman was lonely. She decided to get a pet.

She didn’t have much money so she went to a second hand pet shop.
She saw many animals: a three legged cat, a dog without a tail, fish that could only swim backwards and a beautiful bird that could only say one thing, “Who is it?”.
She decided to buy the bird.
She bought a cage for her bird and went home.
She put the bird by the door and went downtown to do some shopping.
While she was gone, a man knocked on the door.
“Who is it?” replied the parrot.
“It’s the butcher,” he said.
“Who is it?”, repeated the bird.
“It’s the butcher,” said the man.
“Who is it?” asked the parrot.
“It’s the butcher!!,”, said the man angrily.
“Who is it?”
“It’s the butcher!!!!”, he screamed.
“Who is it?” “It’s the butcher, the butcher, the butch…”
Suddenly the butcher fell to the floor. He had had a heart attack.

Later that day, the old woman came home and found the man laying on her doorstep. She opened her door and asked the parrot, “Who is it?” .

The parrot replied, “It’s the butcher!”.
