Did you hear the one about…

One of the entertainers on a cruise ship was a magician. Since the passengers were different each week, the magician always had a new audience. So, he always did the same tricks.

The captain’s parrot, however, was stationed in the performance hall, and observed the magician’s tricks week after week. Being a wise old bird, he eventually figured out all the magician’s secrets.

Then, irritatingly, he started heckling during the show: “Hey, why is every card the same? It’s in his cape pocket! It’s a different rabbit!”

The magician was fuming, but It was the captain’s parrot so he couldn’t really do anything.

One terrible day, however, the ship had a boiler explosion and sank. The magician wound up on a small raft in the middle of the Atlantic with, as luck would have it, the captain’s parrot.

They glared at each other with visible hatred but didn’t say a word. This went on for several days.

Finally, on the tenth day, the parrot couldn’t take it any longer. Exasperated, he said, “Okay, I give up. Where’s the ship?”
