Mickael Martin received a parrot for his birthday, as this was a free gift for buying 500L of beer at once. The parrot was fully grown, with a very british attitude and the best vocabulary ever. Every sentence he spoke was almost poetry.
Martin tried to change the bird's attitude by constantly swearing, playing metal, showing Aussie TV shows...anything he could think of. Nothing worked. He yelled at the bird, and the bird got even nicer with him, thinking Martin needed help. Finally, in a moment of desperation, Martin put the parrot in the freezer.
For a few moments he heard the bird mildly protesting, then getting louder, and then, suddenly, he started swearing like a professional Detroit drug dealer who stepped bare foot on a lego brick.
Martin was delighted, and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot almost tried to kill him, and said: "[Censored] Do not [Censored] do that again, you [Censored][Censored] of [Censored], [Censored]"
Martin was astounded at the changes in the bird's attitude and was about to ask what had changed him, when the parrot continued, "What the [Censored] did the [Censored] chicken do ?"
I think words like 'destiny' are a way of trying to find order where none exists. - Christian Graus Entropy isn't what it used to.
I noticed that actually being funny was not a part of your requirements. That is good, I am sure that many programmers here can write an algorithm to determine that their joke differs from others by >= 66% in wording. But, I doubt many can write an algorithm to determine how funny a joke is.
Just because the code works, it doesn't mean that it is good code.
Bob received a parrot for his birthday. The parrot was fully grown, with a very bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive; those that weren't expletives were, to say the least, rude. Bob tried to change the bird's attitude by constantly saying polite words, playing soft music...anything he could think of. Nothing worked. He yelled at the bird, and the bird got worse. He shook the bird, and the bird got madder and more rude. Finally, in a moment of desperation, Bob put the parrot in the freezer. For a few moments he heard the bird swearing, squawking, kicking and screaming and then, suddenly, there was absolute quiet. Bob was frightened that he might have actually hurt the bird, and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out onto Bob's extended arm and said, "I'm sorry that I offended you with my language and my actions, and I ask your forgiveness. I will endeavor to correct my behavior". Bob was astounded at the changes in the bird's attitude and was about to ask what had changed him, when the parrot continued, "May I ask what the Chicken did?"
