    Stone the crows.

    The Police have found a large number of dead crows on the A638 just outside Doncaster early this morning, and there was concern that they may have died from 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 bird's beaks and claws.

    By analysing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with motorbikes, while only 2% were killed by cars.


    The investigators then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of motorbike kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviourist 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"--------------------

    Thanks Mel.----I try to inject a bit of humour into the forum and in the past it got better reception.

    I have begun to realise that those across the pond seem to have a different sense of humour to us Brits.

    Takes all sorts I guess.---
