Owing a new pet fish

Pat: “Hey Chris! How’s your new pet fish doing? You told me he was really something special:”

Chris: “To tell you the true, I’m really disappointed in him. The guy who sold him to me said I could teach him to sing like a bird”.

Pat: “You bought a fish because you thought you could teach him to sing like a bird? I can’t believe it!”

Chris: “Well, yeah. After all, he’s a parrot fish”.

Pat: “I hate to tell you this, Chris, but while you might be able to teach a parrot bird to sing, you’are never going to get anywhere with a parrot fish”.

Chris: “That’s what you think! He can sing all right. The thing is, he keeps singing off-key. It’s driving me crazy. Do you know how hard it is to tuna fish?”.
