A man wants a pet

He walks into a pet shop and says to the owner,

“I want to buy a pet, but I don’t want a boring, normal pet. No cats, dogs, or birds, I want something different”.

The pet shop owner thinks for a minute, and then tells him that he has a talking centipede.

“Really”?

the man replied,

“How much would this cost”?

The owner tells him that the talking centipede is $75.

Happy with the unusual offering, the man pays the shop owner and takes his new pet home.

Once he got home, he lays centipede on the table, and says,

“Hello Mr. Centipede, fancy going to the pub for a few drinks”?

The centipede says nothing. Figuring it must be tired from the journey, he decides to leave it for an hour and try again later.

An hour later he comes back and says

“Hello mr centipede, fancy going to the pub for a few drinks?”

The centipede again says nothing. Starting to get suspicious the man decides he will give it one more hour, and if the centipede doesn’t talk, he will take it back to the shop for a refund.

An hour later the man returns and says

“Hello mr centipede, fancy going to the pub for a few drinks”?

The centipede replies

“I heard you the first time! I’m putting my shoes on”!
