Do parabolas have asymptotes? If not, why?

LOL, Melody!!!

Look at the general form of a parabola

y =a(x - h)^2 + k

Asymptotes occur where things are either undefined or where they reach some limit.....but, here......there are no bounds on x.  "y" is "bounded" .....in a sense......by whether the parabola is upward turning or downward turning.......but there are no "asymptotes"
