Too many nutters spoil political broth

Joke of the week

The Queensland government learns 200 dead crows have been found by a road near Townsville, and are alarmed that it might be avian flu. Mercifully, an expert examines the remains and determines they have actually died of vehicular impact.

Strangely, he also determines that 98 per cent of the crows had been killed after being hit by trucks and only 2 per cent killed by cars. The state then hires an ornithological behaviouralist to determine why the results are so disproportionate. His report comes back in a week. ”When crows eat roadkill, they always set up a lookout crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger. But while the lookout crow could warn the other crows by saying ‘Cah’, he had not yet learnt to call out ‘Truck!”’
