Two vultures are flying south for the winter, but they decide they are going to
take a commercial aircraft to save time and energy. They are waiting for their
flight at the gate, and one vulture has a dead armadillo tucked under his wing
that he is bringing as a gift to a friend. When they get to the counter, the
gate agent points at the armadillo and asks the vulture, "Would you like me to
check that for you?"
"No thank you," the vulture replies, "it's carrion."
