Polly on a cracker?

Harry, a successful businessman, owed it all to his mother, now an eldery widow. For her birthday, he decided to get her something really special – a trained parrot who could sing grand opera. The parrot cost a fortune, but he thought it a wonderful companion for a lonely woman.

He had the parrot sent right over. A day or two later he called her. “Mom, how did you like your birthday present?” he asked.

“Oh, it was delicious!” she replied.
