    Porpoise is swimming along when he sees Squid.

    Porpoise says: “Gee mate. You look crook. Hop up on my back and I will give you a lift to where you are going.”

    On the way Porpoise sees Shark. Shark says: ‘Hi Porpoise. Are you coming over to play poker tonight?’

    Porpoise: “No. You cleaned me out last night. By the way. Here’s that sick squid I owe you.”
