Very punny

Dear Editor:

New York Gov. Spitzer could be charged with several federal crimes involving the hooker. For the younger generation, I exhume a triple-groaner classic of punning from the last midcentury. It can be stretched out to infinite length.

An eccentric tycoon hired a truck driver to go up and down the East Coast gathering juvenile seabirds to feed the pod of porpoises that hung around his private dock. He believed the diet supplement he was giving them would make them live forever.

Driving up I-95, near Trenton, the driver’s truck struck a lion that had escaped from a state zoo. The consequences progressed as follows: The driver was charged, indicted, tried, convicted and sentenced to 15 months in jail for transporting cargos of gulls across state lions for immortal porpoises.
