    It used to be easy; I’d just check the nets on the trawlers but then the regulations were changed and dolphins don’t get swept up in tuna nets anymore. Canned tuna doesn’t have that je ne sais Flipper flavor that it used to have either. Thanks a lot liberals.Report

    So there was this zoo keeper who worked at the state caring for an immortal porpoise who only ate sea gulls. Baby sea gulls. One day, the zoo keeper was bringing in a truck load of new food for the porpoise, and he drove ran over a baby lyon. Of course the cops arrested him, chargin him with bring young gulls across state lyons for immortal porpoises.Report

    • Misthreaded, of course. This goes with zic’s post.Report

      ISTR that the reason the lion didn’t get out of the way was that it was sleeping, and the charge involved bringing the gulls across a sedate lion. I think zic’s version is better for having the immortal porpoises though – I can’t remember what the version I’d heard had, but the undying porpoise is better.Report

        Actually, the lion was very mature and calm, so the proper charge is transportation across a staid lion.Report

        That’s how I heard it too.

        The key to telling that kind of joke is to use synonyms until it’s time for the punchline. That way it seems to come completely out of the blue. If you start with “immortal porpoises” (instead of say, “marine mammals that live forever when fed on seabirds”), you’ve telegraphed it.Report
