Tastes Like...
===============

A man is caught sitting at a make-shift campfire by a forest
ranger, and to the ranger's horror, the man is eating a bald
eagle. The man is consequently put in jail for the crime. On
the day of his trail, the conversation went something like
this:

JUDGE: "Do you know that eating a bald eagle is a federal
offense?"

MAN: "Yes I do. But if you let me argue my case, I'll explain
what happened."

JUDGE: "Proceed."

MAN: "I got lost in the woods. I hadn't had anything to eat for
two weeks. I was so hungry. Next thing I see is a Bald Eagle
swooping down at the lake for some fish. I knew that if I
followed the Eagle I could maybe steal the fish. I caught up
with the eagle who lighted upon a tree stump to eat the fish.
I threw a stone toward the eagle hoping he would drop the fish
and fly away. Unfortunately, in my weakened condition, my aim
was off, and the rock hit the eagle squarely on his poor little
head, and killed it. I thought long and hard about what had
happened, but figured that since I killed it I might as well
eat it since it would be more disgraceful to let it rot on the
ground."

JUDGE: "The court will take a recess while I consider your
testimony."

(15 minutes goes by and the judge returns.)

JUDGE: "Due to the extreme circumstance you were under and
because you didn't intend to kill the eagle, the court will
dismiss the charges."

The Judge then leans over the bench and whispers: "If you don't
mind my asking, what does a bald eagle taste like?"

MAN: "Well your honor, it is hard to explain. The best I can
describe it is somewhere between a California Condor and a
Spotted Owl."

Howler, that was a great story!
i guess he would have had a feast, here, in Vancouver and the surrounding areas as we, probably, have the largest bald eagle population in the world!
