A taste of egret

In a small town in Oregon, the local game warden had arrested a man for killing and eating an egret. The man chose to go before a judge to plead his case: pleading guilty but with an explanation. "I was just trying to feed my hungry family," he tells the judge, "and I have never done anything like that before."

The judge, being a family man himself, can see the man's point and agrees to let him go free, especially as it was his first and only offense. Although before he lets the man go, out of a sheer perverse curiosity he asks what egret tastes like.

Answers the man: "Well, your Honour, it is not as tender as spotted owl, but it is much better than the fishiness of bald eagle ..."
