> One day a man was walking in the woods when he got lost. For two days
> he roamed around trying to find a way out. He had not eaten anything
> during this period and was famished. Over on a rock ledge he spotted
> a bald eagle. He killed it, and started to eat it.
> Surprisingly, a couple of park rangers happen to find him at that
> moment, and arrested him for killing an endangered species. In court,
> he plead innocent to the charges against him, claiming that if he
> didn't eat the bald eagle he would have died from starvation. The
> judge ruled in his favor.
> In the judge's closing statement he asked the man, "I would like you
> to tell me something before I let you go. I have never eaten a bald
> eagle, nor ever plan on it. What did it taste like?"
> The man answered, "Well, it tasted like a cross between a whooping
> crane and a spotted owl!"
