A burglar tale

This is not exactly a Neocat joke, but the Mouse felt that it had to be shared nevertheless.

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shone his torch around, looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, ‘Jesus is watching you.’

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his torch off, and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a holiday after the next big score, then clicked the light on and began searching for more valuables. Just as he pulled the stereo out to disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard,"Jesus is watching you.’

Freaked out, he shone the light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his torch beam came to rest on a parrot.

‘Did you say that?’ he hissed at the parrot.

‘Yep,’ the parrot confessed, and then squawked, ‘I’m just trying to warn you.’

The burglar relaxed. ‘Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?’

‘Moses,’ replied the bird.

‘Moses?’ the burglar laughed. ‘What kind of people would name a bird Moses?’

‘The same kind of people that would name a rottweiler Jesus."
