The difficulties of counting whales

by Richard on June 26, 2008

We might never know how many whales there are in the oceans, according to a fascinating article from the BBC.

Counting whales may be difficult, but weighing them is dead easy.

Where do you weigh whales?

At a whale-weigh station!.

I’m so dreadfully sorry for that. I don’t know what came over me.

Richard, I didn’t know you had a speech impediment.

(whale/rail) :) Just kidding. I always appreciate good puns. You’re very (p/f)unny.

P.S. sorry I gave away the joke

That one I’ll have to tell my wife; she’ll appreciate it.

A couple of others on a similar vein-

A guy opens his refrigerator to find a rabbit napping inside
“Is this a Westinghouse?” the rabbit asks
“Yes it is.’
“Good. I’m just westing.”

How do you catch a unique rabbit? You ‘neak up on it.
How do you catch a tame rabbit? ‘tame way.

No! Not at all. You see, a weasel’s weasely wecognized while a stoat stoatally different.
