On reaching his plane seat, a man is surprised to see a parrot strapped in next to him. He asks the flight attendant for a coffee and the parrot squawks, “And get me a whisky, you cow!” The flight attendant, flustered, brings back a whisky for the parrot and forgets the coffee.
When this omission is pointed out to her, the parrot drains its glass and yells, “And get me another whisky, you idiot”. Quite upset, the girl comes back shaking with another whisky but still no coffee.
Unaccustomed to such shoddy service, the man tries the parrot’s approach. “I’ve asked you twice for a coffee–go and get it now or I’ll smack you,” he says to the flight attendant.
The next thing he knows, both he and the parrot have been picked up and thrown out of the emergency exit by two burly stewards. Plunging downwards, the parrot turns to him and says “For someone who can’t fly, you sure do complain a lot!”
