An exciting new development in marine biology promised to extend the lifespan of an endangered species of porpoise. In fact, the data suggested that if a specific kind of African seagull, freshly out of the egg, was fed to the porpoises every day without fail, they would actually live forever!

The big challenge was to gather this food supply, this equivalent of chicken dinners for oceanic mammals, on a regular basis. There were many problems, including the fact that it could be dangerous, as these seagulls were found near water holes where all sorts of large game animals congregated.

But this was an important ecological breakthrough, so teams were sent out right away. They worked diligently to supply the necessary small fowl.

One afternoon, an intrepid gull-gatherer on his way back to base from the water hole encountered a pride of lions taking their afternoon nap.

As they were blocking his way, and his day's catch of seagull hatchlings was needed right away, he carefully stepped over the lions that were directly in his path.

That spelled the end of the experiment. The porpoises, deprived of their special diet, not only did not live forever, but they also became extinct.

That was because an alert game control officer had spotted the team member, arrested him, confiscated his equipment and baggage, and charged him with ... transporting young gulls across sedate lions for immortal porpoises.
