Is This Joke Funny Or Is It Just Me?

A young man began his career as a magician on a cruise ship. Vital to his act was his pet parrot - the bird would always steal his act by giving away the trick, “the card is up his sleeve” or “he hid the dove in his pocket.” This always got a great laugh from the audience.

One day the ship began to sink. Risking his own life the magician ran back to his cabin to rescue his parrot. Diving overboard, at the last minute, they landed in the freezing water. The young man grasped onto a wooden door that had broken off the sinking ship and pulled himself and the parrot to safety.

For several days, the pair sat there looking at each other.

Finally, the parrot broke the silence. “Okay, I give up.” He squawked, “What did you do with the ship?”
