    Fowl-Mouthed Accusations

    | Norfolk, VA, USA | Top

    (I’m telling a group of visitors about the peacocks at our zoo. After I’ve finished, one of the visitors stops me.)

    Visitor: “Young man, can I have a word with you?

    Me: “Certainly, ma’am. How can I help you?

    Visitor: “I don’t appreciate you using that kind of language in front of my children.”

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, I wasn’t aware I had.”

    Visitor: “We prefer to call those birds over there pearoosters.”

    Me: “Um, why?”

    Visitor: “Because peacock is a bad word! I really don’t think you should be using that sort of language and those dirty words in front of small children!”
