DEFRA Officials admitted that they found about 200 dead crows on the A6 between Leicester and Lougborough, where there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.

The Government approved research and DEFRA contracted a bird pathologist to examine the remains of all the crows and he confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu, much to everyone’s relief.

However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with lorries, and only 2% were killed by car impact.

The Government then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine the disproportionate percentages for lorry versus car kills.

After 18 months of research and £2.7 million spent, the Ornithological Behaviourist determined the cause in the deaths.

When crows eat road kill, they set-up a look-out crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.

His conclusion was that the lookout crow could say “cah”, but he could not say “lorry”.

I just wanted to make sure that you knew your tax money was being well spent . . .

I would like to think that was a joke, but it too close to being true to laugh at....

Being dyslexic I was surprised the death of 200 cows hadn't made the papers? After that it was downhill to the punch line Smile
