Who said that?

Late one night a burglar broke into a home. He immediately froze when he heard a loud voice say, "Jesus is watching."

Silence returned, so the burglar crept forward.

"Jesus is watching," the voice boomed again.

Stopping in his tracks, the robber looked around frantically, then spotted a parrot in a cage.

"Was that you?" asked the thief.

"Yes," answered the parrot.

The criminal sighed in relief then asked, "What's your name?"

"Clarence," replied the parrot.

"That's a dumb name for a parrot," sneered the burglar. "What idiot named you Clarence?"

"The same idiot who named the Rottweiler Jesus," the parrot replied.
