Hi. The joke you are going to read is one of my favourite jokes. I love linguistics so I am interested in jokes related to it and the English language. After reading the joke try to beam, smile, smirk and simper even if you did not get it. O.K.?
An English professor complained to the pet shop proprietor, "The parrot I purchased uses improper language."
"I'm surprised," said the owner. "I've never taught that bird to swear."
"Oh, it isn't that," explained the professor. "But yesterday I heard him split an infinitive."
Now, I am ello ell(lol).
