It was the end of the day when the officer parked his big yellow police van in front of the station.
As he was gathering his equipment, his K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and it was then that the officer spotted the little red haired boy staring at him.
"Is that a dog you got back there?" he asked.
"It sure is," the policeman replied.
Puzzled, the boy looked at the officer and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, "What'd he do?"

that was how you could tell which were homygoolies and which were homypussys. He asked Ivor Knackeroff the local vet if that could be the way to sex the chicks. Ivor scratched his bald head and consulted Dr Google who couldn't cast any light on the subject. So Jemmy decided to go down to the pub for a few pints and ask his mates.

But what was not known, was that Dragonbird was not a true pedigree !
Dragonbird was a crossbreed, which would soon become apparent ...
When it was suspected that Dragonbird had died, the final resting place of the carcass was atop a pyre.
Dragonbird was set to be cremated !
However, as the flames started to engulf Dragonbird and tears started to flow from those witnessing the event - suddenly out of the flames and smoke arose ---------------------
A Phoenix
Dragonbird was indeed half Dragonbird and half Phoenix.
The reincarnation of the Phoenix was complete as the Phoenix flew to and landed on the branch of a nearby Oak tree ...

Dragonbird (using its beak) removed its passport from a previously hidden pocket under its right wing. When the passport was opened, it was there for all the world to see, next to the part which states 'Sex' was the the word 'Fe/Male' so the question remains 'is Dragon bird a Female or a Male' ?????

But Dragonbird couldn't undestand why - after all he had only performed some what he considered to be minor acts of vandalism.

Like emptying four large packets of Persil into the town fountain. Jacking the police cars up and removing the rear wheels, which he then dumped in the caves.
