An old parrot flew out of a farm house and joined some crows in a watermelon
patch. The farmer, not knowing this and trying to protect his crop from the
crows, blasted them with his shotgun. The results were dead crows and one
ruffled parrot with a missing toe. The farmer tenderly took him home where the
excited children gathered around and asked, "What did it?". The parrot answered,
"Bad Company!" The parrot spoke wiser than he knew. His foolish choice of
associates had endangered him. So it is with us - bad days come from bad
companions, and better days with better associates.
