    What the public is saying:

    4/5 "Would read again."

    "I read the poll several times and didn't see "Orange Parrot". Then it hit me!"

    "Gorn is a modern snark master in the form of Martin. His(?) galactic view lends to wicked humor."

    and one child was heard to say "I like turtles!".

    I still don't really get it. I think the answer is supposed to be a carrot. It's orange colored and sounds like the word parrot. Is this funny sarcastically? Like "guess what? Chicken butt!" I don't know.

  16. Most parrots can speak English. None of the carrots I have ever say anything.

    If a parrot shuts up then it sounds like a carrot. However carrots cannot mimick a fluent talking parrot.

    Some parrots often shout "Carrots!!".

    I have yet to hear a carrot shout "Parrots!".

    I was gonna say Donald J ... but then I realised a parrot has been known to say a complete and coherent sentence.

    A orange carrot is making my gig life miserable? I don't get it, and I probably never will with this attitude mister.

    I think maybe if the OP had dropped the "a" - "What's orange, and sounds like 'parrot'?" - but I'm probably overthinking it again.

    Perhaps the OP will return and enlighten us with the true answer to the "Greatest Joke of All Time."

    I suggest you sit down with your wife and have a open honest conversation about the Orange Parrot Saying Carrots ruining your gig life.
