ENG Joke- An Inscription Problem

According to the Knight-Ridder News Service, the inscription on the metal bands used by the U.S. Department of the Interior to tag migratory birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated, "Wash. Biol. Surv." until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper:
  • inscription 刻印文字、題詞
  • Department of the Interior 內政部
"Dear Sirs: While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and I want to tell you it was horrible."
  • crow 烏鴉
"Wash. Biol. Surv."應該被那位camper解讀為: "Wash"洗淨==>"Boil"水煮==>"Serve"上桌享用了。天啊....吃烏鴉本身就是一絕,用這種方式烹煮烏鴉更是...不知道他怎麼想的XD
