This is so bad as a joke it's GREAT!
This afternoon's e-mails.
"Don't blame me, I just forwarded it........
Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently,
and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all
the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death
appeared to be vehicular impacts.
However, during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks
By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks,
while only 2% were killed by an impact with a car.
MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages
of truck kills versus car kills.
Scroll down. Remember, you opened it. This is great!!
The Ornithological Behaviorist very quickly concluded the cause: when crows eat road kill, they always have a
look-out crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.
The conclusion was that while all the lookout crows could say "Cah", none could say "Truck."
