Riddle: A pet shop owner had a parrot with a sign on its cage that said “Parrot repeats everything it hears.” A young man bought the parrot and for two weeks he spoke to it and it didn’t say a word. He returned the parrot but the shopkeeper said he never lied about the parrot. How can this be?
Parrots are a kind of bird that can repeat what you say. They do this thanks to their brilliant memory and repeat the words they memorize without understanding them. The pet shop owner in this riddle also claims his parrot repeats everything it can hear. A man bought this parrot, but no matter how much he talked, the parrot didn’t say a word.
The reason the parrot could not speak was because the parrot was deaf. The owner of the pet shop said that the parrot repeats everything it can hear, but since the parrot can’t hear anything, it can’t repeat anything. The answer of this riddle is that the parrot was deaf.
Answer: The parrot was deaf!
