The burglar and the parrot

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shone his flashlight around looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, "Jesus is watching you."

He nearly jumped out of his skin, switched his torch off and froze. When he heard nothing more after a few minutes, he shook his head, promised himself a holiday after the next big score, then switched his torch on and began looking for more valuables.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching you."

Freaked out, he shone his torch around frantically looking for the source of the voice.

Finally, in the corner of the room his torch beam came to rest on a parrot.
"Did you say that?" He hissed at the parrot.
"Yep" the parrot confessed, and then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you."
The burglar relaxed, "Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?"
"Moses" replied the parrot.
"Moses?" the burglar laughed. "What kind of people would name a parrot Moses?"
"The kind that would name a rottweiler Jesus."
