Birthday Bird


Funny bird birthday suit gift joke story image


I dialled my mother's phone number, full of anticipation. I was dying to know what she thought of her birthday gift.  I'd found it in a dingy old Chinese shop: a large, though rather odd-looking bird that had the astounding ability to sing the Puccini aria Vissi d'arte, my mother's favourite.  It had cost me £430, including delivery, but was bit worth every penny.

"Hello?" answered my mum eventually.

"Hi Mum," I said, scarcely able to contain my excitement.  "I was just calling to see if you got your birthday present..."

"Oh, yes dear, I did, thank you so much," she replied, "It was delicious!"
