Barry Cryer's Joke

Blog | By Barry Cryer | Jul 10, 2020

An insurance man knocks on the door of a house.

The owner is out - so the parrot answers the door, and asks, 'Who is it?'

'The insurance man.'

'Who is it?' says the parrot.

'I told you - the insurance man.'

'Who is it?' the parrot repeats.

This goes on seven or eight times. And eventually the poor insurance man has a heart attack and collapses and dies on the doorstep.

The owner of the house comes back and sees the dead insurance man.

'Who is this?' the house-owner asks the parrot.

'Oh, it's the insurance man,' says the parrot.
