12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

The Magician and the Parrot

A magician was working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The audience would be different each week, so the magician allowed himself to do the same tricks over and over again.

There was only one problem: The captain’s parrot saw the shows every week and began to understand what the magician did in every trick. Once he understood that, he started shouting in the middle of the show.

“Look, it’s not the same hat!” “Look, he’s hiding the flowers under the table!” “Hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades?”

The magician was furious but couldn’t do anything, it was the captain’s parrot after all.

One day the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found himself on a piece of wood, in the middle of the ocean, and of course the parrot was by his side.

They stared at each other with hate, but did not utter a word. This went on for several days.

After a week the parrot finally said, “Okay, I give up. What’d you do with the boat?”

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY MY FRIENDS…

  1. Accidently bumped into your website today and enjoyed the notes on Angie and Earl from Policewoman. Many, many years ago, in Chicago (1965), I was a model having the time of my life. I attended the cast party for the opening of Funny Girl at Stanley Greens on State Street. Earl Holliman was there to be with friend Anthony George’ who was in the cast. Also attending was the glorious Eartha Kitt from “Owl and the Pussycat”. While standing in front of a bowl of caviar and trying to figure out what it was, a voice behind me said, “with that lovely red hair, you look like Pussy Galore”. I was startled to look into the eyes of Mr. Holliman, and said, “what a frilly, beautiful shirt”. We both laughed, had a great conversation and went out a few times while he was in Chicago. He was a handsome, very well mannered gentleman who made me feel very special. He told me stories of his childhood that brought tears to my eyes, and he wiped off my running mascara with his own handkerchief. A wonderful few days in my life. He has me beat by a few years, but who cares. He is a special man and I will always remember his kindness and compliments to me. Many of his best movies for me were Sons of Katie Elder and The Rainmaker. Marilyn Richards

  2. Made a mistake in my email address below for Earl Holliman. It is corrected now below. Thank you, but, I am “an old lady also” but still pretty nifty so they tell me, and that’s my kids and husband. LOL
