I guess he’s seen a dart gun before, Earl!

INDIA/

I’ll tell you what, Earl, this ain’t good. When a tiger escapes from a zoo, somebody notices something like that!

I got it under control, Boss!

tiger dart crop 260Under control? It’s Family Day here, a huge tiger is stalking the grounds looking for lunch, and it’s under control?

Calm down, Boss, I already shot it with my tranquilizer dart – look, it’s stickin’ right out of its back, so relax!

I can see. Earl, it looks pissed now and it’s coming our way. Exactly how much tranquilizer did you put in that dart?

Put in? You mean the darts don’t come ready to use? Crap! Where can I stick this rifle?

Oh I’ll TELL you where you can stick the rifle, Earl!

That tiger must be a follower of the OE blog too cause it seems to need a daily dose also.

Sorry, I think I might be missing something here… isn’t the dart on it’s back the regular way to take your meddies?

Does that mean that you guys get yours delivered in some other way?

Crap!! I need to talk to my nurse, now.

There’s nothing like suddenly breaking into a sprint past a big group of people at the zoo whilst screaming “Run, run for your lives, they’re free !”

That prank is seriously appealing… only if it doesnt cause mass panic that is… oops… :P

CrowGirl, I’m going to have to go to the zoo and try that! Right near the gorilla exhibit I think.

Just make sure you are not caught E… that is a waste and a darn stupid thing to do!

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Well Shra, I don’t think it would have the same effect at the Flamingo exhibit eh? Don’t worry, I wouldn’t be dumb enough to actually do it. You believe me…right?

:P

(thinking really hard…)… No.. :P

E, you could also try it in the City or on Wall Street. I am afraid the response in the crowd would be somewhat more panicky!

It’s important to be far enough away when you stop to laugh that you don’t get a kicking…

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

New, no. But I have recently picked the straw and chicken feathers off it.

Yep. :) Saturday morning, lying on top of the hay bale stack watching the sun burn the mist from the valley, sharing a cup of tea and a biscuit with the sheepdog… I love my job. :)
