Bill posted this 17th century joke 20 years ago today:

The Higher Pantheism in a Nutshell

One, who is not, we see: but one, whom we see not, is:
Surely this is not that: but that is assuredly this.

What, and wherefore, and whence? for under is over and under:
If thunder could be without lightning, lightning could be without thunder.

Doubt is faith in the main: but faith, on the whole, is doubt:
We cannot believe by proof: but could we believe without?

Why, and whither, and how? for barley and rye are not clover:
Neither are straight lines curves: yet over is under and over.

Two and two may be four: but four and four are not eight:
Fate and God may be twain: but God is the same thing as fate.

Ask a man what he thinks, and get from a man what he feels:
God, once caught in the fact, shows you a fair pair of heels.

Body and spirit are twins: God only knows which is which:
The soul squats down in the flesh, like a tinker drunk in a ditch.

More is the whole than a part: but half is more than the whole:
Clearly, the soul is the body: but is not the body the soul?

One and two are not one: but one and zero is two:
Truth can hardly be false, if falsehood cannot be true.

Once the mastodon was: pterodactyls were common as cocks:
Then the mammoth was God: now is He a prize ox.

Parallels all things are: yet many of these are askew:
You are certainly I: but certainly I am not you.

Springs the rock from the plain, shoots the stream from the rock:
Cocks exist for the hen: but hens exist for the cock.

God whom we see not, is: and God, who is not, we see:
Fiddle, we know, is diddle: and diddle, we take it, is dee.
Algernon Charles Swinburne

> 'My last bird watching trip was rather disappointing. Egrets, I saw a few. But then again, too few to mention.'

Hm, I have read this quite a few times by now.
But I don't get the joke.

(I got the ibis one, and the watermelon one, but not the egret one)

Maybe it is because I am not a native English speaker ...
I had to look up the word "egrets" - ok, that's some white bird feeding on fish.
Doesn't help to get the joke ...

Could someone please explain?
Thanks!

Letter in the Daily Mail:-

"Visiting the seaside resort of Felixstowe, I witnessed a terrible incident. A couple having a blazing row started hitting each other with sticks. The husband threatened the baby. Then a policeman arrived, drew his truncheon and belted this hapless man senseless.
I stood there open-mouthed. To cap it all, a crocodile arrived and ate all the sausages!"

Ah Malcolm, that almost exactly describes the wildlife around here too! Being on the river Wensum and having several small lakes as well, we get loads of dragonflies (had a hawker in the front garden only yesterday - not a salesman, a large, dark-brown dragonfly!) and all those birds you mention. Not to mention cock chafers (now there's a cue for a joke!)
It's funny how people from different regions attribute different words to the call of the wood-pigeon. Here it's "My toe bleeds, Betty!" which is their dawn chorus. The "Food Food!" is only when I appear later and scatter breadcrumbs for them.
Husband hates their racket early in the morning. His personal dawn chorus is, "Ces bloomin pigeons m'amerdent! Eh-boh dah!" (These bloomin' pigeons annoy me. F*** off!" (Mixture of French, 'Norfolk' and Malinke. He's trilingual)

This is off topic, but sort of related. I just stood on the verandah looking at the apricot-coloured pre-sunrise sky. I was listening to the butcher birds, the magpies, a kookaburra, another bird that I can't identify with a beautiful clear song, and a couple of other bird types, and watched some of the fruitbats flying slowly back to their roosting spots in the mangrove trees near the creek, next to the harbour.

In the last couple of weeks I've realised that one of the most common calls of the Spotted Dove around here sounds like they are saying, "the vaccine, the vaccine, the vaccine...." over and over. A paid advertisement from the health service, perhaps?

Senoufou, I used to read a little book at the library where I worked. I can't remember the title or the author but it was a blooper-type of collection of quotes from the BBC radio and TV.

One of my favourites was someone on the radio earnestly talking about birds and in the middle of the speech s/he said, "Great tits like watermelons".

"But these people, (yes, mostly men!) seem to go whizzing around Norfolk to take photos of our numerous and uncommon birds (hen harrier, bittern, egret for example.)"

I guess it depends on the egret, Sen.

Going by the RSPB site, the little egret is a reasonably common sight in Norfolk (and I think both on the Broads and parts of the coastline - even I have seen them) these days.

I guess the great white egret might be one to get the twitchers out though.
