So this guy who works in an aquarium gets summoned by his boss, who says to him: “I just walked by the dolphin tank and they’re feeling very amorous.
They’re doing all sorts of things to each other.
In two hours we’ve got three bus loads of second graders coming, and we can’t have them watching those naughty dolphins behaving as if they were in a porno flick.
Now the only thing that works as an anti-aphrodisiac for dolphins is the meat of baby seagulls, so I want you to take this bag, go to the seashore, fill the bag with baby seagulls, and hurry on back.”
“Oh, and be careful, a lion escaped from the zoo last night, and although he was heavily sedated, he still might be dangerous.
Well, get going, and make it snappy.”
So the guy takes a shortcut through the forest, fills the bag with baby seagulls, and coming back through the forest, takes a turn on the path and there, in front of him, is the lion.
It’s too late to run away, and the beast does look rather placid, so summoning up all his courage, he steps across the lion.
Nothing happens. So with great relief, the guy continues on his way, when a policeman steps out of the forest, grabs the guy by the arm, and says “You’re under arrest.”
The guy can’t believe it.
He says “Tell me, Officer, what’s the charge?”
And the policeman says “Transporting young gulls across a staid lion for immoral porpoises.”
