A magician worked on a cruise ship and did the same tricks each week.
However, there was a problem: the captain's parrot began to understand how the magician did every trick and started shouting out the secrets in the middle of the show.
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, with the parrot, adrift on a piece of wood in the middle of the ocean.
They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day, then another, and another.
Finally, after a week, the parrot said, "OK, I give up. Where the heck is the boat?!"
