On a recent visit to the bird shop to pick up finch seed, I noticed something unusual.
“Wow”, I said to the shopkeeper. “That’s quite the supply of parakeets you’ve got today.”
The shopkeeper sighed. “One of my breeders called me. ‘You gotta help me out!’ he said. ‘I went on vacation. My wife forgot to remove the breeding boxes from the aviary. I came home from vacation and found I had forty parakeets.'”
The shopkeeper sighed again. “So now I have forty parakeets.”
