Stork, it's what's for dinner.

There is very sad news from, Steve Newman of Tribune Media Services, in today's paper.  it seems that a stork fitted with an electronic tracking device by European wildlife researchers was arrested and jailed in Egypt.

There were accusations of espionage.  After a lengthy investigation and hours of intense, borderline abusive interrogation there was not enough evidence to convict, so the stork was released.

Storks around the world were celebrating.  A new contract between storks and European researchers was drawn up and signed by both sides.  Storks and European researchers were celebrating in the streets.  It was thought that a new era of cooperation was being welcome.


Unfortunately, villagers killed and ate the recently exonerated stork.  "It was delicious," the villagers are quoted as saying.
