The Dempsey & LLoyd Photoshoot  

This is a special page for Dempsey and Lloyd (connoisseurs in Parrot jokes) who live beside Carn Brea in West Cornwall

Hi,  Everbody ! I'm Dempsey !


Who's a pretty bird, then ?

"Happy Birthday to you ...

ehup ma duck ..."

(the rest is censored)

Do you want to hear a joke ? ...

Well, Dempsey thinks it's funny ...

Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers and prospered. Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who lived far away in another city.


The first said, "I had a big house built for Mama."


The second said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar theatre built in the house."


The third said "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."


The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this preacher who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took twenty preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute 100,000 a year for twenty years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it."

"Here we go !"

 "Acrobatics with LLoyd.."



The other brothers were impressed.

After the holidays Mom sent out her thank you notes.

"She wrote: "Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home, I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."

"Michael, you gave me an expensive theatre with Dolby sound, it could hold 50 people, but all my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same."

"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you."



Dempsey whispers in LLoyd's ear ...



"A man took his parrot to the vet because it had been sick." 


The vet said, "I have good news ...

... and I have bad news."

"The bad news is, your bird has chirpees.

The good news is, it's tweetable."

I think LLoyd liked that one .. or have I pulled out his hearing-aid ? I might have pooed on his shirt !

Below, another from Dempsey's joke album ...

One day a man went to an auction. While there, he bid on an exotic parrot. He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher.

Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won the bid. The fine bird was finally his! As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, "I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can't talk!"

"Don't worry," said the Auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?"
