Greetings Infomaniacs,

Congratulations to Gene Phillips who won this week's "Mind Scrambler". Here was the scrambler:

A petshop owner had a parrot with a sign on its cage that said "Parrot repeats everything it hears". Davey 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?

ANSWER: The parrot was deaf.

Enjoy!
