Dodo Birds

Story Sent in by Paul:

I volunteer at my local zoo and I'm sure to put that fact front and center on my profile. Dorothy asked me about it in one of her first messages and we chatted for a while about my good times with the penguins, sloths, and emus.

It was a little too cold to bring her to the zoo for our first date so I took her out for dinner instead. We talked a lot about animals and in the middle of it she burst into tears.

"Why did the Dodo Bird have to die? Why?"

I suggested, "The explorers were hungry?"

She bawled right there at the table and hardly touched her dinner. The night was ruined and I never asked her out again.
