The Bidding Parrot

A gentleman goes to an estate sale and notices one of the items for sale is a large parrot. He's always wanted a talking bird, so when it comes up for bid he offers $50. The bidding proceeds hot and heavy, with someone always bidding ten dollars more than he, until the parrot is finally sold to him for $1,500.

When he goes to get the bird, he asks the auctioneer, "Can the bird talk?"

The auctioneer replied, "Who do you think was bidding against you?"

In business, ethics are always appreciated.

A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is his delight (Prov. 11:1). ESV
