I grew up in North Dakota.
It was often said (prior to the recent oil boom, anyway) that North Dakota had more bison than people. This opinion was most frequently intoned by East Coast “scientists” of overly-graviteous demeanor and overly-unctous, mournful tone. They would then follow up with their latest and most clearly brilliant plan to turn North Dakota into a wildlife preserve so the buffalo (another term for bison) could freely roam.
Upon finding out that the latest of this string of earnest scientists was from the fine state of New Jersey, North Dakotans mumbled that they’d be happy to turn their state into his pet wildlife grazing project—after, of course, the fine state of New Jersey had first been turned into a parking lot for New York City.
Let it never be said that the agricultural Dakotans don’t have a finely-honed sense of the absurd.
The above history—of being personally discriminated against in favor of the buffalo—is my only excuse for thinking that this little comic is one of the best puns I’ve seen all week.
