During a shower of rain the Keeper of a Zoological garden observed a Man of Principle crouching beneath the belly of the ostrich, which had drawn itself up to its full height to sleep.

“Why, my dear sir,” said the Keeper, “if you fear to get wet, you’d better creep into the pouch of yonder female kangaroo–the Saltarix mackintosha–for if that ostrich wakes he will kick you to death in a minute.


Sardonic. Cynical. Fun.
