A thief had just broken into a house where he was certain the owners were gone for the evening, when he heard a very strange voice say: "Jesus is watching you!" He froze for a few seconds and then realized that the voice sounded like a parrot's.
Turning his flashlight in the direction of the voice, he indeed saw a parrot in a cage. "Is your name 'Jesus'?" he asked the bird.
"My name is 'Moses', asserted the parrot.
"Who on Earth would name a parrot 'Moses'?" asked the thief.
"The same people who named their Rottweiler 'Jesus'!" replied the parrot. ”
