The Magician and the Parrot

Funny joke about a magician who took a job working on cruise ships in the Caribbean.

A magician needed a break from the stress of city living, and so took a job on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The pay was average, but the perks were good, and as the audience would be different each week, the magician didn’t have to practice to hard: he could repeat the same tricks every week.

However, over time, a small problem developed. The captain''s parrot saw the shows each week, and began to understand how the magician did each trick. The parrot began squawking during the show…
"Look, it''s not the same hat"…
"He''s hiding the flowers under the table"…
"Hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades?" …

The magician was furious, but, of course, he couldn’t do anything about it. The captain would not have been happy if anything had happened to his parrot.

One day the ship that the magician was working on ran into trouble. After running into rocks near Jamaica, the ship tragically sank. There were few survivors.

As it happened, the magician found himself sharing a piece of wood floating in the Caribbean Sea with the parrot. They stared at each other with hatred, and neither uttered a word for many days.

Finally, the parrot broke the silence:

"OK, I give up. Where''s the boat?"
