Lady's dishwasher breaks down so she calls a repairman. She has to go out so tells him 'Don't worry about my bulldog, he won't bother you, but whatever you do don't under any circumstances, talk to my parrot!
The man starts work, wary of the biggest meanest look bulldog he's ever seen. But it just lays there watching him work. The parrot however drives him nuts, yelling and cursing.
Finally the man snaps and yells 'Shut the .... up ya annoying ........' Parrot replies,
'GET HIM SPIKE'
