A man broke into a house when he thought no one would be at home.

He crept carefully through the property and as he stepped into the lounge room he stopped dead in his tracks when he suddenly heard someone say very clearly, “Jesus is watching you!”

He stood very still for a moment until everything in the house fell silent again. He then moved forward very slowly. Once again he heard the voice say, “Jesus is watching you!”

The man started to get very frightened and he stopped to try to figure out where the voice was coming from. He looked around, peering into the darkness, when all of a sudden he spotted a parrot in a birdcage.

The man looked the parrot in the eyes and asked, “Was that you who said, ‘Jesus is watching you’?”

“Yes,” the parrot replied.

The man relaxed and breathed a sigh of relief. “Thank goodness for that,” he said to the parrot. “What’s your name?”

“The family here call me Ronald,” the parrot said. To which the man replied with a laugh, “Ronald! You can’t be serious! What sort of family calls their pet parrot Ronald?”

“The sort of family that calls their ferocious rottweiler guard dog Jesus,” the parrot replied.
