  • budapest8's Profile Photo

    by budapest8 Written Dec 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    A burglar broke into a home and was looking around.
    He heard a soft voice say, "Jesus is watching you".
    Thinking it was just his imagination, he continued his search.
    Again the voice said "Jesus is watching you".
    He turned his flashlight around and saw a parrot in a cage.
    He asked the parrot if he was the one talking and the parrot said,
    "yes." He asked the parrot what his name was and the parrot said
    Moses." The burglar asked, "what kind of people would name a parrot Moses?"
    The parrot said, "the same kind of people who would name their pit bull Jesus".
