Peggy wanted to buy a talking parrot and went down to the pet shop.
She bought a parrot after being assured it would repeat any word or phrase it heard.
Peggy bought the parrot and took it home, but it still hadn't said a word after a few weeks.
She returned to the shop to complain, but discovered the original assurance were still accurate.
Why didn't the parrot talk?
