You Call This A Song Bird (limerick)

I bought my dear wife a song bird

But soon all my anger was stirred

To store we did go

The salesman to show

That bird didn’t know single word

Mhatter, this was an opportunity to teach the bird what you wanted it to say. You missed it! Ha Ha.

I know why, dear Martin,

And the answer I will share.

The poor bird does not know a word,

Because his teleprompter's not there!

If it is advertised as a songbird, it needs to sing!
