A magician was working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean.  The
audience would be different each week, so the magician allowed
himself to do the same tricks over and over again.

There was only one problem:  The captain's parrot saw the
shows each week and began to understand how the magician
did every trick.  Once he understood he started shouting in the
middle of the show:

"Look, it's not the same hat."
"Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table."
"Hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades?"

The magician was furious but couldn't do anything; it was, after
all, the captain's parrot.

One day the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found
himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the ocean with the
parrot, of course.  They stared at each other with hate, but did
not utter a word.

This went on for a day and another and another.  After a week
the parrot said:  "OK, I give up.  Where's the boat?"
