    There was this magician who had a job on a cruise liner, entertaining
    the passengers with a nightly show. He was very successful in his job
    and there was always a full house at all his performances. Life was
    sweet. The money was rolling in, he had one of the best cabins, ate
    the best food, mixed with the best people. All was fine until one day
    the captain bought a parrot.

    The highlight of the parrot's day was going along to see the magician
    in action in the evening. During the magician's performances, the
    parrot would watch him very carefully during each trick, and
    immediately after the magician had completed the trick the parrot
    would call out in a loud squark, " It's up his sleeve, it's up his
    sleeve," or, " It's down his trousers, it's down his trousers," each
    time ruining the magician's trick.

    Well life was no longer as sweet and the magician started to struggle
    to satisfy the passengers. The magician naturally got very tired of
    the parrot and longed to kill it.

    Then one night in the middle of the magician's performances, the ship
    hit an iceberg and sank. Everyone was killed except for the magician
    and the parrot. The magician managed to swim to a piece of wreckage,
    climbed aboard and collapsed. The parrot flew towards the magician
    and perched on the edge of the raft and stared at the magician.

    For a whole day the magician was unconscious, and all this time the
    parrot did not take his eyes off him. Eventually the magician started
    to stir, and looked up not really knowing where he was or what had
    happened. He eventually found enough energy to sit up. He then
    noticed the parrot, who had not stopped focusing his eyes on him all
    this time.

    "All right I give up ..." chirped the parrot, "... What have you done
    with the ship ?"
