When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Davidson’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen, but just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the parrot drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing, and name-calling.
Finally, the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid bird!”
To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”
