Why Did The Crow Die While Crossing The Road?
Automologist MAC has been quarantined too long…
I was scanning the internet and came across this story: apparently, the California D.O.T found over 200 dead crows on California Highways recently and there was concern that they may have died from the Avian Flu. A Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows and, to everyone’s relief, confirmed the problem was NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be from vehicular impacts.
However, during analysis, it was noted that varying colours of paints appeared on the birds’ beaks and claws. By analyzing these paint residues, it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed from impact with motorbikes, while only 2% were killed by cars.
The Agency then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of motorbike kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviorist quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger. They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout “Cah”…not a single one could shout “Bike”…Boom boom!
Okay, I made this up but it is better than writing about the Wuhan Flu!
