Three sons were discussing the gifts they had bought their mother. The first had bought her a big house. The second had bought her a Mercedes with a driver. The third knew she loved the Bible so he said he'd bought her a parrot which had been specially trained to recite Bible verses. All she had to do was suggest a reference and the parrot would start reciting. The first son got a letter saying that it was a very nice house, but it was too big and took all her time to clean. The second son got a letter saying the car was much too big for her and besides, the driver was rude. The third son got a letter saying, "You're the only one who understands me. Your two brothers give me stuff I don't really want. But you're such a good son. Thank you. The chicken was delicious."
