A MAN with a Shotgun said to a Bird:
'It is all nonsense, you know, about shooting being a cruel sport.
I put my skill against your cunning-that is all there is of it. It
is a fair game.'
'True,' said the Bird, 'but I don't wish to play.'
'Why not?' inquired the Man with a Shotgun.
'The game,' the Bird replied, 'is fair as you say; the chances are
about even; but consider the stake. I am in it for you, but what
is there in it for me?'
Not being prepared with an answer to the question, the Man with a
Shotgun sagaciously removed the propounder.
