Three brothers, now men, have a meeting. They discuss about birthday gifts that they just offered their old mom.
The first says : "I had a great house built for our mother..."
The second says : "I offered her a nice Mercedes with driver..."
The third smiles and says : "I had a better idea than you. You know how much mom likes reading the bible ? and you surely know that her visul abilities have considerably decreased. So I sent her a remarkable parrot who recites the bible in its whole.
This took to Church's brothers 12 years for teaching it. It's a rare specimen. Mom have only to say the chapter and the verse, and the parrot recites."
Some days later, the mom sends her sons a letter in order to thank them.
"André, the house that you have had built for me is so large, so big. I live only in one room...but I have to wash all the house..."
"Gérard, I am too old for travelling... I stay most time at home. I rarely use the Mercedes... and the driver is so coarse when driving..."
"My dear Albert, you know the tastes of your mom... you always know exactly what could make me pleasure... thanks a lot ! the chicken was really delicious !"
