walk into a pet shop in St. John's and walk over to the
bird section and Gerry
says to George, 'Dat's dem.'
The owner comes over and asks if he can help them.
'Yeah,we'll take four of dem dere little budgies in dat cage
up dere,' says George.
The owner puts the budgies in a cardboard box.
George and Gerry pay for the birds, leave the shop and get into Gerry's truck to drive
to the top of Signal Hill.
At Signal Hill Gerry looks down at the 1000 foot drop and says, 'Dis looks like a good place.'
He takes two birds out of the box, puts one on each shoulder and jumps off the cliff.
George watches as the budgies fly off and Gerry falls all the way to the bottom,killing himself stone dead.
Looking down at the remains of his best pal, George shakes his head and says, 'Fook dat. Dis budgie jumping is too fook'n dangerous for me!'
later; Seamus arrives.
He's been to the pet shop too and walks up to the edge of the cliff carrying another cardboard box in one hand and a shotgun in the other.
'Hi,George, watch dis,' Seamus says.
He takes a parrot from the box and lets him fly free.
He then throws himself over the edge of the cliff with the gun.
George watches as half way down, Seamus takes the gun and shoots the parrot.
Seamus continues to plummet down and down until he hits the bottom and breaks every
bone in his body.
George shakes his head and says, 'And I'm never trying dat parrotshooting either!'
IT IS NOT OVER
George is just getting over the shock of losing two friends when Bren appears.
He's also been to the pet shop and is carrying a card board box out of which he
pulls a chicken.
Bren then takes the chicken by its legs and hurls himself off the cliff and disappears down until he hits a rock and breaks his spine.
Once more George shakes his head.
'Fook dat,lads. First dere was Gerry with his budgie jumping, den Seamus parrotshooting... And now Bren and his fookin hengliding!'
