One day while preparing tests the scientist realized that he was nearly out of Mynah birds. Because they were an integral part of the research, the scientist packed some cages into his car and set out to capture more birds. While he was out driving and announcement came over the radio that a lion had escaped from the State zoo and he was considered dangerous.
The scientist gathered his inventory of birds and headed back to the laboratory. When he arrived he was startled to find the escaped state lion was fast asleep in front of the door to his lab. This was indeed a dilemma! If he didn't get in to feed the porpoises his experiment could be ruined and he would have to start over. He decided to take his chances.
The scientist carefully removed the cages from his car and oh so quietly tip-toed toward the lab door. The lion, sound asleep didn't flinch. Quietly he turned the knob on the door and he nervously stepped over the lion and stepped into the lab shutting the door behind him. The moment he shut the door, sirens howled, and all heck broke loose.
The charges? Wait…wait…okay, the scientist was charged with “Transporting Mynahs over a State lion…for immortal porpoises!”
As an end-note I want to assure everyone that no animals were harmed in writing this story except my dog Higgen’s feelings because I wouldn't let him sit in my lap while I typed.
More puns to follow…try the pork tar-tar…I’ll be here all week.
I’m just saying.
