Budgies, Parrots and Chickens – Newfie Joke

May 22, 2007 · Print This Article

Two Newfies walk into a pet shop. Right away they go over to the bird section. Gerry says to Jimmy, “Dat’s dem.” The clerk comes over and asks if he can help them. “Yeah, we’ll take four of dem dere birds in dat cage over dere,” says Gerry, “Put dem in a peeper bag.” The clerk does and the two guys pay for the birds and leave the shop. They get into Gerry’s van and drive until they are high up in the hills and stop at the top of a cliff with a 500-foot drop. “Dis looks loike a great place, eh?” says Gerry. He then takes two birds out of the bag, places them on his shoulders and jumps off the cliff. Jimmy watches as his mate drops off the edge and goes straight down for a few seconds followed by a ‘SPLAT’. As Paddy looks over the edge of the cliff he shakes his head and says, “Fock dat, dis budgie jumpin’ is too fockin’ dangerous for me.” A minute later, Sammy arrives. He too has been to the pet shop and he walks up carrying the familiar ‘peeper bag’. He pulls a parrot out of the bag, and then Jimmy notices that, in his other hand, Sammy is carrying a gun. “Hi, Jimmy. Watch dis,” Sammy says and launches himself over the edge of the cliff. Paddy watches as half way down, Sammy takes out the gun and blows the parrot’s head off. Sammy continues to plummet until there is a ‘SPLAT’!, as he joins Gerry’s remains at the bottom. Jimmy shakes his head and says, “An’ oim never troyin’ dat parrotshooting nider.” A few minutes after Sammy splats himself Sean strolls up. He too has been to the pet shop and he walks up carrying the familiar ‘peeper bag’. Instead of a parrot he pulls a chicken out of the bag, and launches himself off the cliff with the usual result. Once more Jimmy shakes his head – “Fock me Sean, first der was Gerry wit his budgie jumping, den Sammy parrotshooting, and now you fockin’ hengliding”
