As sent to the dhMC Bull by Bandana Bill: One day, my neighbor's dishwasher quit working. She calls a repairman and tells him, "Let yourself in to fix this. My bulldog won't bother you. But, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!" The repairman arrives and finds a huge, mean-looking bulldog. As promised, the dog leaves him alone. But the parrot drives him nuts with constant yelling, cursing, and name-calling. Finally, the repairman can't contain himself and yells, "Shut up, you stupid bird!" To which the parrot replies, "Get him, Spike!"
